The School conducted a mentor session for the students of classes VI-VIII on 17th July 2020, from 11:00 am -12:00 noon. The session was conducted by Mr Devansh Ahuja, Mentor with Apeejay School, Pitampura, appointed by Atal Innovation Mission. The session was on the topic - ‘Importance of coding and how it impacted our lives’.
The session started with the display of project created by Devansh himself on turning the bulb on and off using a mobile. The code of the project consisted just 9 lines. This showed the power of coding. With few lines of code, it displayed how we can make our lives simpler and easier.
He further demonstrated the project on hand washing. As we all are aware that we need to wash our hands for at least 20 seconds. In the project, a person had to bring his hand near the sensor and red light glowed. After 20 seconds the light changed to green, informing us that we can now stop washing our hands.
Learning to code is necessary these days as the world is heading towards automation. The future is of robots and Artificial Intelligence. Learning to code develops problem thinking and computational skills of children.
