CDAC Holiday Workshops
Code during the Holidays!
We collaborated with CDAC to conduct Micro:bit and HaloCode workshops across Singapore during the holiday break from November to December 2019. Students learnt the capabilities of these micro-controllers (or “mini-computers”) and how to program them.
Over 120 students and over 100 students participated in the Micro:bit and HaloCode Workshops respectively. The students feedback were largely positive. Out of every 10 students, 9 students agree that the workshop proved useful and interesting, and some even commented that they will like to come back for more of such workshops!
What did our students learn?
Micro:bit Workshops: Students learnt how to code microbit and use it as a light or temperature sensor, compass, accelerometer or even send messages to other micro:bit using its radio feature! In their Final Project, students learn how to code and make a Soil Moisture Detector or Self-Watering Plant.
Artificial Intelligence Workshops: Students learnt how to create light animations on HaloCode’s LEDs and explored the motion sensing feature in HaloCode. They discovered how to transform HaloCode into an Internet of Things by controlling it over Wi-Fi. explored AI Speech Recognition feature through HaloCode’s microphone tool.
We hope that the students will indeed grow into the Creators of Technology after attending our workshops.
