Delhi Public School International To Start Teaching Robotics, Coding

Delhi Public School International (DPSI), the only international school in Uganda teaching India’s acclaimed Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), will next year in May start their ‘stem and Robotics programme.’

Under these programmes, the school, a member of the Ruparelia Group, said, will teach fundamental engineering concepts, design, building, testing and basics of coding.

“Our school prides itself on the balanced education it provides, the world-class facilities on offer, high moral standards and the fact that our students strive for excellence in all spheres of school life,” the school of the upcoming projects.

Coding is the process of using a programming language to get a computer to behave how you want it to. Every line of code tells the computer to do something, and a document full of lines of code is called a script.

Robotics is a branch of engineering that involves the conception, design, manufacture, and operation of robots. This field overlaps with electronics, computer science, artificial intelligence, mechatronics, nanotechnology and bioengineering.

Delhi Public School International recently had representatives of universities from the UK and Canada offer their career guidance to their students.

“Our students having one on one Career Guidance sessions with representatives from various universities in Canada and the UK. This Career Guidance Fair was organized at DPSI by S3 Education,” DPSI posted on social media with pictures of the career guidance sessions.

Delhi Public School International said that as an international school they have an obligation to prepare their students to be able to make the right academic choices and for that matter, they have engaged some of the best international universities in the world to share their experiences.

Delhi Public School International Learners Get Career Guidance From UK, Canada Universities

Many times, young students make wrong academic choices especially when it comes to the courses they are to study at university. These wrongly chosen courses equally lead these students to careers they don’t like or have talents to excel.

To avoid, Delhi Public School International (DPSI), the only international school in Uganda teaching India’s acclaimed Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), had representatives of universities from the UK and Canada offer their career guidance to their students.

“Our students having one on one Career Guidance sessions with representatives from various universities in Canada and the UK. This Career Guidance Fair was organized at DPSI by S3 Education,” DPSI posted on social media with pictures of the career guidance sessions.

Delhi Public School International said that as an international school they have an obligation to prepare their students to be able to make the right academic choices and for that matter, they have engaged some of the best international universities in the world to share their experiences.

DPSI, a member of the Ruparelia Group, also involves parents ‘in the school planning process because students develop better social skills and improved behaviour when their parents are involved at school.’

“Our school prides itself on the balanced education it provides, the world-class facilities on offer, high moral standards and the fact that our students strive for excellence in all spheres of school life,” the school in a public statement.

DPSI as a school is both modern and forward-looking, yet remains close to the values on which it was founded.

It has recently invested in world-class laboratories ‘because combining classroom teaching with laboratory experiments ensures students interact directly with the data gathered to get a first-hand learning experience.’

“At Delhi Public School International Kampala, we try to recognize the imperative of imparting an educational experience that is world-class in every respect and which prepares children for global citizenship.

We believe that a curriculum of excellence with a global dimension is central to the education of children to face the challenges of the 21st century with confidence and strength of character,” the school said.

The Ruparelia Foundation Managing Director Rajiv Ruparelia unveiled the enrolment of Felista Di Superstar before members of the press and other entertainers in the music industry. Felista Di Superstar, only seven years old, was accompanied by her mother and father Nyanzi Michael Kasibante.

Felista joins young musician Patrick Ssenyonjo known by his stage name Fresh Kid who got a scholarship from the Ruparelia Foundation in May 2019 to study at Kampala Parents’ School. Fresh Kid and his father were present at the unveiling of Felista.

Rajiv said he was compelled to support Felista because of her exceptional talent despite being only seven years old. He added that Felista was joining a model school which creates more opportunities, thus advised her to participate in all co-curricular activities.
