Currently, the Digital Lab curriculum consists of five separate core courses where students can learn about basic robotics, artificial intelligence, electronics, how to make games, and how to program their own LED charm in a fun way and creative.
Each course consists of five sessions. Normally, one session is given per week over a period of five weeks. Each session lasts three hours, including breaks, and provides a recap of learning from previous sessions to aid in knowledge retention.
Lego Robotics Course
Robots are the future. To ensure students are prepared, the course introduces them to the basics of robotic control – familiarizing them with methods similar to those used in advanced robotics today.
Game Development Course
Students learn to animate their own characters and make them move as they please. In this course, we explain the basics of game development using Scratch programming. Students will learn to create simple games based on ideas and suggestions provided at the start of each session.
Arduino electronics course
In this course, students will learn to program using Arduino, which is a great way to learn electronics and coding at the same time. Students will learn how to control traffic lights, make LED lights change color, or program a speaker to play musical tones – and even create their own musical instruments.
During this session, students will create and build a fun AI application, and also gain an understanding of useful real-world problems that AI can solve.
Here, students will learn how to mix art and creativity with programming to make the world around us more colorful. They will also learn how to light up their favorite gadgets – with code!
