These events can show non-coders new potential, teach effective software development practices, help students acquire specific technology and interpersonal skills, and bridge the gap between academia and the real world. In school, you learn and then apply; in the real world, you have to apply without learning. These events help participants “learn how to learn,” learning through application.
The first ever Intel Mobile computing curriculum workshop was successfully held in Intel Shanghai Zizhu site, with 30 attendees in total!
The Intel® Academic Program welcomed faculty and students from the University of Los Andes in Bogota Colombia. The group toured the Intel Museum and took pictures outside the Robert Noyce Building (RNB) in Santa Clara, CA. The faculty expressed interest in many aspects of the Intel® Academic Program, including the new programs for visual computing, security and mobile computing. We have new friends in Colombia and I look forward to more collaboration with the University of los Andes. Below are a few pictures from the visit:
The Intel Academic Program announces new software projects for security coursework, labs and experiments. These tools support the Intel Security Curriculum Series and can be used in general aspects of security instruction. Peruse our first projects on the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), Trusted Boot, Identity Protection and Digital Random Number Generator (DRNG) here on the Security tab: http://software.intel.com/academic
This Hackathon, ongoing now as I write these words, is focused on the needs of girls in South Sudan. We are working with Unicef who are running a program now in Juba, the capital of south Sudan, focused on this issue.
The Intel China Academic forum (ICAF) is an Intel Academic event held in China every other year. The purpose of the forum is to encourage the collaboration between Intel and China Academics. The attendees are the deans or department chairs from different universities in China and some officials from China education ministry. The one-day security curriculum workshop is organized by Intel lab for security curriculum update from several funded universities in China. We attended these two events to introduce the Intel Academic security program in the security curriculum workshop and ICAF.
Medical students are often faced with dense medical textbooks, mounds of paper, demanding learning schedules and much more. Yet with portable notebooks and tablets, medical students have been able to consolidate and better organize their school activities.
The Intel seed-board program recently donated BIS-6630 Norco development kits to Patrick Schaumont, currently an Associate Professor at the Bradley Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Virginia Tech. The BIS-6630 development kits are compact fanless embedded PCs designed around the Intel® Atom™ N2800 processor at 1.87GHz (formerly known as Cedar Trail). The platform comes with a Fedora clone pre-installed, but also supports embedded development using the Yocto project (http://www.yocto-project.org).
Breaking News: the blog is back! First, introductions: my name is Michael Smith, Ph.D. and I am the director of the Intel Academic Program. While I’ve had the opportunity to speak with many of our members over the last couple of months, I’d like to use this first blog post as an opportunity to share just a couple of my key experiences with the Academic Program over the summer.
Day 3 at the IUEE Hackathon
My third day at the IUEE hackathon was a bit less eventful than my first 2 days. Like before, the main room was crowded with participants looking forward to a day of learning how to build game, but had less need for mentors. I decided to take advantage of Ashish's bootcamp tutorial on how to program a game using HTML. This was a great opportunity for me to learn how to build a beginner game.
