Computer think tank for schoolchildren | Goa News


Panaji: school students will be trained in calculus thought by the Directorate of Higher Education (DHE) in a Diwali summer camp. It will be held from November 8 to 13 as part of the “Kaushalya Saptah” celebrations.
It will be open to students from elementary to secondary school level, the director of education Bhushan Savaikar told schools.
The camp aims to instill in school children skills such as critical thinking, problem solving and other soft skills. DHE worked with the Association of Computing Machinery, India, Tata Consultancy Services and Google for Education to deliver the camp.
Students must register online at before October 31st and the registration fee of Rs 200 must be paid by November 5th.
The camp was planned each day in two groups – 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. for students aged 8 to 10 and from 11:15 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. for 11 to 14 year olds.
“Given the limited number of places, registration would be on a first come, first served basis,” said the DHE.
The program will be carried out in six centers – the government colleges of Khandola, Quepem, Sakhali, Borda and Pernem, and the Dempo College of Arts and Science, Miramar.
The DHE said that by the end of the workshop, students will have effective articulation skills, confidence in public speaking and presentation, and a foundation in writing and listening.
Teaching will be delivered in a fun and interesting way using interactive storytelling and narrative format, the use of music and dance through animation and the design of games, mazes, races, etc.
