Innovate with IoT: Hands-On workshop on IoT for Underprivileged Pre-University Students
We are planning to organize a hands-on workshop on the Internet of Things (IoT) for pre-university (school level students). This activity will be performed at Government Boys Elementary and Lower Secondary School, Islamkot Tharparkar. This workshop is a dynamic and STEM activity designed for underprivileged students aged from 11 to 18 years old. The aim of this workshop is to bridge the gap of digital divide between the underprivileged and urban pre-university students with opportunities to explore the IoT technological world. Through this hands-on STEM activity, participants will develop problem-solving skills which they would eventually use it for required application.
During the hands-on workshop, the students will be introduced to a series of activities including the concepts of IoT, sensor interaction, basics of programming, how to connect sensors with Arduino, data collection and so forth. They will have a chance to interact with some real sensors, including DHT11 & DHT22 (temperature and humidity sensor), infrared sensor, HC-SR04 (ultrasonic sensor). The series experiments will be perform using the above sensors and collected data will be monitored. Thus, the student will come to know about how to assemble and program them to collect the data and apply those sensors for various applications, i.e., healthcare and agriculture to smart cities and environmental monitoring. In the end, we will donate a few IoT sensors and Arduino (ESP8266 or ESP32) to school for practicing of their students. These series of activities will open the doors for the students for the potential future career in the field of engineering and technology.
