The online camp at IIT Gandhinagar will introduce school students to cognitive science, artificial intelligence, and neuroscience
'Camp CogSci,' an online programme, will take place from January 7-9, 2022.
The Curiosity Lab and Centre for Cognitive and Brain Sciences at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Gandhinagar are offering an online camp to introduce children, teachers, and parents to cognitive science, artificial intelligence, and neuroscience.
The goal of 'Camp CogSci,' which is aimed at children in grades 8 through 12, as well as teachers, parents, and education scholars, is to stimulate excitement, curiosity, and have fun while learning. The sessions are designed to introduce students to the current professional and educational opportunities in the field of Cognitive Science.
Jaison A Manjaly, Principal Investigator, Curiosity Lab, IIT Gandhinagar, said, "Curiosity Camps offer an opportunity for students, teachers, and parents to explore the possibilities offered by Cognitive Science in various domains of society, science, and technology. The Curiosity Camps aim to introduce novel perspectives in learning while building awareness of the multiple career paths that exist and are supported by institutions such as the IITs".
Participants will gain knowledge of the brain's mysteries as well as scientific research and opportunities. Schoolchildren will also get the opportunity to connect with instructors from higher education institutions throughout the camp.
