Greensprings introduces robotics, AI in curriculum
Greensprings School is set to commence the study of robotics and artificial intelligence (AI) among its secondary school students.
This followed admission of the school into the second phase of the “Next Robotics Legend Programme” organised by Edu360.
Speaking at the official launch of the programme, the school’s Deputy Director of Education, Dr Barney Wilson, said: “We are thrilled to have been chosen as one of the four schools that would participate in the second phase of the Next Robotics Legend Programme., which will complement the Airbus Foundation little engineer programme our students had some years ago.”
Wilson explained that the training, which will involve both teachers and students, would run for six weeks. He added that the organisers would provide all the robotics toolkits, including mekamons needed for the training.
At the end of the programme, robotics and artificial intelligence would be fully integrated into the school curriculum, thereby making Greensprings one of the first few schools offering robotics and AI at the secondary school level in Nigeria.
“This is a very good opportunity for our students and they are extremely happy to be part of the exciting project,” Wilson stated. The Next Robotics Legend Programme is an initiative of Edu360 by Union Bank.
The initiative aims to integrate robotics and AI into the education of Nigerian children, and better prepare them for the workplace of the future. The programme is facilitated by Awarri – the pan-African Robotics and Artificial Intelligence (AI) Company, founded by the renowned Robotics Engineer, Silas Adekunle.
