Chennai school to teach robotics



The Japanese-based Learning System Inc, developers of creative computing and robotic education programme for schools, have signed an Memorandum of Understanding with the Chennai-based BVM Global Education Trust, to impart robotic education in Bala Vidya Mandir school at Adyar, Chennai.

The course will begin in all the BVM Global Schools from the academic year 2010 as part of school curriculum for students of sixth to ninth standards. Similarly the school will also conduct “after school programme” for the benefit of other school children and others, who are interested in the course.

The President of Learning Systems, Masao Ishihara, who was in Chennai to sign an MoU with the Managing Trustee of Bala Vidya Mandir and BVM Global Schools, A. S. Ramana Prasad here on Thursday.

In a chat with The Hindu, Mr. Ishihara said that robotics had been popular and effective among the students of developed countries such as North America, Japan, Korea and some parts of European countries.

The educational systems in Japan and Korea had been keen in promoting robotics as an academic course at the school level. “It encourages students to use their imagination, try out their problem solving skills and work in a team. It also enables students to contribute to the process of designing, building and testing solutions,” he said.

About robotic education, Mr. Ishihara said Learning Systems provided the best robotic kits, which had been selected for specific education purpose, with creative computing software and progressive curriculum activity packages.

It enables students to get a head start on simple robotics by building models, attach sensors and motors that were plugged into a computer and configure behaviours using a simple programming tool developed by Learning Systems.

Over a period of time the students would have learnt to design programme and control fully functional model, he said.

The students use software to plan, test and modify sequences of instruction for a variety of life-like robotic behaviours.

Similarly, they also collect and analyse data from sensors, using data logging functionalities embedded in the software. Robotic education is an open-ended problem finding and solving focused education programme.

On the robotic course, S.S. Nathan, Chief Executive Officer, BVM Group of Schools, said creative computing and robotics (CCR) programme was a whole new way for Indian school students to learn STEM subjects (science, technology and engineering and mathematics) through experimenting with leading edge software and robotic kits. It consisted of 30 classes of each 80 minutes of lessons.

Mr. Prasad said the school would be charging a minimum fee for the course from the student. The fee would be shared by both the players on accepted ratio. The school would have to invest in a robotic lab, where in every two student would have one netbook and a robot. Similarly, the school would be hiring trained tutors for the training the students.

Virginia Tech varsity to set up campus in Chennai

With the Cabinet nod to the Foreign Educational Institution Bill, allowing foreign education providers to set up campuses in India, Chennai has got the first ‘pedagogic’ call from the overseas.

The US-based Virginia Tech University has chosen Chennai to establish its Indian campus in collaboration with Marg Ltd, the diversified infrastructure major, on the outskirts of the city. The Indian edition of Virginia Tech, which has been touted as the future Asian hub of the education major, will offer advanced education and research in the fields of nanoscale science and engineering, nano biotechnology, biotechnology, information technology and automotive engineering. Virginia Tech will manage the campus and design its academic programmes, research facilities and labs.

“This will be a joint venture and other modalities are being worked out as the new Bill will be taken up by the lawmakers very soon. The Marg has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Virginia Tech and we expect the campus to be operationalised by July 2011, said Marg Ltd chairman & MD GRK Reddy.

The 30-acre campus is expected to come up at Marg’s flagship Swarnabhoomi project which will feature innovation centres and draw upon Virginia Tech research resources such as the Institute for Critical Technology and Applied Science and the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute and the Virginia Bioinformatics Institute at Virginia Tech. The centres will work with industry to capitalise on innovation research and emerging market opportunities in India and the region. The campus will be managed and operated by a joint trust in the knowledge hub of Marg Swarnabhoomi. Marg will be developing the required infrastructure for the trust to establish the university.

Reddy said, “The MoU with Virginia Tech is a proud moment for us, as we will be a part of promoting world class education through the university, which will help address the global opportunities at large.” Marg Swarnabhoomi has been designed to be an aspirational habitat based on the principles of new urbanism, where business, living and learning will coexist in a stress free atmosphere. At Marg, we strongly believe in inclusive living, and are confident that this initiative will help in enhancing and enriching the lives of the future generations.”

Charles W Steger, president of Virginia Tech said, “This is a historic moment for Virginia Tech. Virginia Tech, India will create a place in India where engineers, students, and high tech science professionals from the United States...

AICTE receives 79 new applications from State

Seventy-nine new applications from the State have been received by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) for approval to start new institutions. Of these 48 are for engineering colleges, 21 for management colleges, nine for integrated campuses and one for a school of architecture.

P. Mannar Jawahar, southern region chairman, AICTE, said a meeting would be held on March 27 to finalise the formalities for scrutinising committees. The process of approval was expected to be completed by May-end.

The State government had earlier indicated its opposition to new engineering colleges being started when a number of seats went unfilled in the previous year's counselling process. But, a senior government official said they would not intervene in the applications process of the AICTE this year as it was at an advanced stage.

In another issue, over 100 students of postgraduate programmes in various colleges affiliated to Anna University were found to have taken up full-time courses while they were working in various capacities.

After the students represented to the Vice-Chancellor, a committee was formed and found that attendance registers were falsified by certain colleges.

Many students who were working as lecturers in engineering colleges submitted their resignations and requested the university to allow them to complete their degrees.

Dr. Jawahar said the university had decided not to disqualify the students. They would be asked to complete the six semester part-time ME programme instead of the four semester full-time programme and were being let off without any other penalty.

Scholarship for south Indians at Cambridge University



CHENNAI: The signing ceremony for a new long-term endowment, Pemanda Monappa Scholarship, which will guarantee one fully paid annual scholarship for south Indian students to pursue post-graduate studies at Cambridge University, was held at the British Council here on Thursday.

Speaking at the function, Editor of The Hindu N. Ravi referred to the “long and glorious connection” between India and Cambridge University, an institution which has so far produced three Indian Prime Ministers, including Manmohan Singh.

Mr. Ravi added that it would no longer have to be the case that "only those from the most privileged backgrounds in south India" could afford to study at one of the world's greatest universities.

The generosity of the endowment, said Michael O'Sullivan, Director of the Cambridge Commonwealth Trust, would ensure the long-term future of the scholarship. He hoped that it would “change the life of someone who will change the lives of others''.

British Deputy High Commissioner Mike Nithavrianakis said that he fully supported the new programme, and praised the attitude of Indian students for placing so much importance on their education.

President of the Association of British Scholars and former bureaucrat P. M. Belliappa is responsible for establishing the new scholarship in the name of his father, Pemanda Monappa, a highly decorated police officer who served in all the four southern States. Mr.Belliappa expressed his support for the increased internationalisation of higher education and a hope that the new scholarship, in time, "would produce another Manmohan Singh''.

“A subject on cyber crime should be made part of school syllabus,” he said.

Mr. Rajendran also suggested mooted an international apex body to speed up investigations into cyber crime cases, as in many cases, the accused operated from abroad.

Madras University Vice-Chancellor G. Thiruvasagam said that the university is planning to introduce cyber criminology in its curriculum. Topics of discussion at the seminar included cyber crime prevention, information security, national and international cyber laws, technological and legal challenges of cyber crime.
