Infocomm Club


InfocommExco2022 (1)


In this ever-developing world, it is often said that we must change with the times, or be left behind. Thinking of computers simply as matrixes of 1s and 0s, or robots as R2D2 and C-3PO, will, quite simply, no longer cut it. RI’s Infocomm Club trains students in various aspects of technology, developing necessary and sought after skills, both presently and in the future. Through your four years in this CCA, you will learn and grow through exciting programs taught by highly-skilled individuals and organizations.

RI Infocomm is split into three branches: Programming, Competitive Programming, and Robotics. The Programming branch offers two programmes, the Swift Coding Club by Apple, and the Sentinel Programme by MINDEF-SAF. These programmes teach hyper-important areas of programming, such as Apple’s flagship development framework, as well as cyber-security and web-development, respectively. Neither of these programmes require prior knowledge, teaching from the ground up and only requiring a critical and inquisitive mindset.

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.

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.
