CLWB @ Bristol Technology and Engineering Academy

 

bteaIn one of our most exciting projects to-date, we are delighted to be implementing STEM at the Bristol Technology and Engineering Academy, a Centre of Excellence for teaching Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. BTEA is a University Technical College sponsored by the likes of Rolls Royce, Airbus, Royal Navy and GKN.

Over the next year, BTEA will be adopting several of CLWB’s products and programs including:

CLWB STEM Box” – a virtual ‘sandbox’ for STEM coding activities covering each STEM subject area, including:

  • Astronomy
  • Physics
  • Biology
  • Technology
  • Engineering
  • Mathematics

ZEP Island™ – an education game which integrates STEM learning experiences

Electronics  

Games Programming  

Introduction to Coding 

In the Christmas and Eater terms we will also be running whole-school events:

  • Extreme Measures – how to measure everything!
  • Sporting Innovation – design, prototype and pitch new sport products

We very much look forward to working further with the staff and students at BTEA to develop a UK showcase for STEM.

Artificial Intelligence Demystified

Artificial Intelligence demystified

CLWB.org is delighted to announce a major initiative aimed at democratising Artificial Intelligence (AI). AI is driving the automation of a swathe of jobs – including many that were once regarded as ‘safe’.

Whilst AI can seem inaccessible and complex at first, our goal is to open up AI for as many people as possible by helping them to quickly acquire a practical understanding of how AI works and what it can do for them.

From October 2017 we will be working with broadcasters, recruitment agencies, publishers and technical partners in UK, Australia, Singapore, Canada and Brazil to deliver 1-day workshops and learning kits.

With no prerequisites – apart from curiosity and basic Excel skills – professionals from all walks of life will get the tools they need to make sense of AI. As part of the package, participants will receive a toolkit that they can then use at home or in work to consolidate and build on their learning.

Participants will be carefully lead through the basic mathematics, data handling, and algorithmic thinking skills needed to understand AI, and will be shown how AI solutions can be implemented and scaled.

AI Demystified topics include:

  • What exactly is AI?
  • How can you take advantage of AI?
  • ‘Quick Starts’ – essential Maths and Technology skills
  • Putting Machine Learning to work on your data
  • Getting to depth and scale with AI solutions

Starting at the Engine Shed in Bristol UK on October 19th and 26th 2017, we are working with SETsquared to run 2 workshops, and invite you to participate.
