Asha Rural Technology Centre - RTC

RURAL TECHNOLOGY CENTER

IITM Pravatak has formed a partnership with Asha for education, Chennai to establish 3 Rural Technology Centers in Thiruvallur District. We hope to expand these to many more centres over time.

Asha through its technology centers will offer a more comprehensive curriculum introducing computers, programming with simple tools, programmatically control hardware devices like sensors and controller and provide insight into latest technologies.

The Rural Technology Center will be located in the same villages. Here too we will offer courses to 9th to 12th standard students. The goal of these centers is to make the children comfortable with the use of technology by providing both digital literacy skills and computational thinking skills. Our foundational coursework will follow the guideline provided by internationally acclaimed code.org curriculum. We will enhance this with additional courses on programming hardware devices like IoT and sensors using microcontrollers like Raspberry PI and Arduino Boards. We will also provide introductory courses on Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Virtual Reality and so on.
