On September 8, 2017 at NK6107 Room, Lecture Building 2, Khon Kaen University Nongkhai Campus, Computer Science and Information Program, Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering organized a workshop: YOUNG IT SEED CAMP WITH LEGO EV3 ROBOT with an objective to enable school students to choose their program according to their aptitude and interest. The workshop trained students in development of robotic control program, with an emphasis on real practice until the learners can draw conclusion on their own and become able to use the knowledge in the future. The workshop also prepared the students towards Thailand 4.0, to assist in driving the country forward towards security, wealth and sustainability. In the workshop, young students were taught about computer processes, how to write a program to control LEGO EV3 ROBOT. Participants included 60 Pathumthepwittayakan School, Nongkhai.
Asst. Prof. Dr. Wichai Sermphon, Assistant to the Dean for Research and Technology Transfer said that YOUNG IT SEED CAMP WITH LEGO EV3 ROBOT workshop transferred knowledge and technique to develop a robot-controlling program and inspire the students who love technology and robotic control. The trainers and student assistant students were from information and computer science who had knowledge and expertise in transferring the content and could supervise students’ practices at all steps.
Dr. Kanda Sorn-in, a lecturer from Computer Science and Information Program revealed that YOUNG IT SEED CAMP WITH LEGO EV3 ROBOT is another chance to incubate the intellectual seeds or students at high school level with skills, theoretical and practical knowledge related to robotic control program. The trainees receive basic knowledge of the basis of program writing and robot control. They could apply the knowledge to improve themselves, increase their potential in occupation in this field. It also integrates academic services to the course introduction to computer program writing. The computer science program is also introduced to school students and their teachers.
