Infocomm Club

 

Infocomm-Collage-2021

 

 

Today’s world is becoming increasingly technologically-oriented. Join Infocomm and train your computational and programming skills to become an engineer, a designer, a problem solver, a pioneer and an inventor; solve the world’s greatest problems and tackle society’s most pressing issues! And along the way, learn to work as a team, sharpen your mind and express your inner creativity. We will help you achieve all of these dreams!

Infocomm is split into 3 sections: programming, robotics and competitive programming. In programming, learn how to develop websites, games and applications, and explore continuously evolving fields like cybersecurity and machine learning. In robotics, use tools like Raspberry Pis, Lego Mindstorms and Arduinos to construct autonomous robots that can complete challenging tasks. Finally, in competitive programming, invent and develop creative solutions to solve complex computational problems.

If you are interested in joining RI Infocomm, just inform our teachers-in-charge! We will warmly welcome you and guide you along your programming journey!

Robotics Members fighting for victory for RI at the RoboCup Singapore Open 2019. They ultimately emerged as the Soccer Lightweight champions and were chosen to represent Singapore at the International RoboCup 2019 in Sydney, Australia. There, the team secured 1st Place in the Superteam competition and 5th Place in the Junior Soccer Lightweight Category.

 Winners of Asia Imagine Cup Junior Challenge.

This global challenge is focused on Artificial Intelligence (AI), introducing students to AI and Microsoft’s AI for Good initiatives so they can come up with ideas to solve social, cultural and environmental issues. Our Year 1 team came up with An app using facial and gesture recognition to provide means of communication for people who can’t speak. They wanted to create this app to help one of the students communicate with a grandparent, who had recently had a tracheotomy.

Infocomm member crafting and programming a fake bomb which can only be ‘defused’ by solving a puzzle. Here, they use an arduino board along with different input and output components to create a complex device. This was made based on the game “Keep Talking and Nobody explodes”.

 

Members from our programming branch making use of what they have learnt in training to design and build an application. Here, they are working in groups to brainstorm and research ideas for their app. Later, they will program and create prototypes of the app.
