SROBOT TRAINING AT LE VAN HUU SECONDARY SCHOOL NHA BE DISTRICT
SRobot V 2017 - 2018 is the first time that the organizers have given a chance for secondary school students to participate in SRobot competition in SRobot Incubator. That makes the number of secondary schools registering for the training session on 4 & 5/11 is more than expected.
In order to deploy training for all schools, SaigonTech decided to organize additional training sessions. In the morning of November 9th, SaigonTech instructors were at Le Van Huu Secondary School in Nha Be District to train 5 secondary schools.
Ms. Minh Thuy, an IT teacher of Le Thanh Cong Secondary School, said that she and her students were very excited to be informed of this competition by the Nha Be Education Department. Although she was worried a bit because her students have just started learning Pascal, she still encouraged them to register. With the thought of learning and preparing for the next SRobot competition, Ms. Minh Thuy and her students of Le Thanh Cong secondary school joined this competition carefreely and comfortably.
It is known that programming is bored and full of mathematical issues, and it seems to be suitable for male students. However, an pleasure surprise for this training session was that the number of female contestants was more than male ones. Nguyen Thi Thanh Truc from Nguyen Binh Khiem secondary school excitingly said: "I think girls have many advantages in assembling and coding robots. For example, we are very skilful to assemble small details whereas boys are not”. She also shared that she was confident to win because she was very good at coding.
Teachers and students confirmed that SaigonTech SRobot competition helped them to understand Pascal more thoroughly. Coding is not lifeless letter or digit it helps us to control, to command robots. All students hoped to continuously participate in this competition during secondary school and high school.
The training session for secondary school finished, and the elimination round is getting near. SRobot Incubator’s contestants should be ready for the coming exciting competition.
