This is the 7th year that the School of Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) conducted the ICT workshops for secondary schools.
The workshops, held in March and April this year, was aimed at introducing to the school students the higher level of application and knowledge related to Information Technology (IT), which is a field of technology that is always undergoing rapid changes and affects the way we live and work.
After attending the workshops, the school students would have gained a better understanding of the subjects and therefore they would be better equipped with the relevant knowledge to participate in any ICT related competition.
The ICT workshops offered had three topics:
- Internet of Thing (IoT) : The interconnection via the Internet of computing devices embedded in everyday objects, enabling them to send and receive data.
- Web Development (Mobile platform) : Create and design a web page by using HTML, CSS and applying the effects that are available.
- Data Science : Data science equips students with the skills to analyse data in order to make more intelligent decisions. Today, data scientists are among the most sought-after and lucrative professions. As such, it is essential to expose students to the fundamentals of data science early in schools.
