Raipur government school to teach Robotics, AI and Machine Learning to students

This school in Chhattisgarh's capital will teach robotics, AI to students. Apart from Chhattisgarh's capital, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra and Gujarat are also included under project 'Jigyasa'. In this laboratory, students from classes 4th to 10th will learn about the making of electronic devices, robots, technical models and others.

Realising the importance of technological changes emerging across the globe, a government school in Raipur is all set to offer classes related to robotics, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning students from the new academic session. The move was taken following the significance of robotics, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning for career perspective in future.

With the setting up of a robotics laboratory, Pt. RD Tiwari Government English School (transformed under Swami Atmanand Excellent School Scheme) became the 10th government school in India to have such a lab under project 'Jigyasa', according to a press statement. In this laboratory, around 500 students from separate classes will learn about the development of models as well as electronic devices.

Apart from Chhattisgarh's capital, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra and Gujarat are also included under project 'Jigyasa'.In this laboratory, students from classes 4th to 10th will learn about the making of electronic devices, robots, technical models and others. The students of 4th and 5th will be taught about models (without electronic devices) while the students from 6th to 10th will be trained to make electronic models. Moreover, the students will be taught about programming through computers in the robotics lab.

To enhance the creative skills of students, they will be subjected to the task of developing models, programmes and robots."The basic objective of this is to develop interest among the students towards key subjects like mathematics and science," stated the headmaster of Pt R D Tiwari Government English School Anuj Kumar Dwivedi. "All the equipment of the laboratory came from Sweden", added the headmaster.

He further explained that when a student engages in the development of a model, a student has to calculate space as well as other requirements. Through this project, the students would be able to learn about the things being required in development of a building. The robotics lab will encourage innovation among students and enhance their interest towards science, mathematics and technology.

"The things students will learn here at the laboratory are going to be helpful to them for attaining a better career in future", Headmaster Anuj added."A mentor has also been appointed to teach students about programming and making of robots", he said."The students of primary level will be taught the basics of design while the students of 6th and 7th will be trained about things related to electronics", said Saurabh Verma, mentor of the laboratory, elaborating that thereafter, they will be taught about making robots."The students of higher secondary classes will be detailed about the basics of language as well as programming", added Verma.

"The students of primary level will learn designing through an interactive session. Particularly, the students will be trained about load balancing as well as the concept of sciences" said Verma.He further informed that in the robotics lab, the students will be skilled in making models solving the problems linked to common people like development of traffic signals (lights) and the programme used for its functioning.
