IIT-Delhi, CISCE join hands for courses on robotics, artificial intelligence | Delhi News

NEW DELHI: Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi and Council for Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) together are planning to introduce robotics and artificial intelligence as courses for classes IX to XII.
IIT Delhi on Saturday said it has tied up with CISCE to design curriculum for schools affiliated to the board in upcoming technologies including robotics, artificial intelligence, machine learning and data science. The memorandum has been signed between CISCE and IIT Delhi’s I-Hub Foundation for Cobotics (IHFC) – the technology innovation hub of the institute.
Highlighting the need to introduce contemporary subjects at the school level, Gerry Arathoon, chief executive and secretary of CISCE, said: “The board has always strived to provide its students with a wide variety of subject choices, catering to their interests and capabilities while also addressing the contemporary requirements and it is with this objective in mind that CISCE plans to introduce the subjects – Robotics and Artificial Intelligence at ICSE (class IX and X) and ISC (class XI and XII) levels. ”
Officials said that IHFC will help CISCE curate the syllabus for reinforcing 21st-century skills and also execute certain aspects of National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 for students studying in schools affiliated to the board.
“IHFC has also offered its expertise to the CISCE to revamp the current STEM courses in line with the NEP 2020 launched by the Union education ministry,” officials said.
Emphasizing the need to build the country’s capability in the field of robotics and upcoming technologies, Ashutosh Dutt Sharma, CEO, IHFC. said: “IHFC’s endeavor is to reflect the principles of experiential learning along with theory aspects while developing the curriculum. IHFC may also play a key role in executing the same in more than 2700 schools affiliated to the CISCE and provide them with guidance to implement the same. ”
Professor SK Saha, project director, IHFC, added that nurturing teamwork, innovation and knowledge to bridge the gaps between young engineering students and potential future robotic enthusiasts are a prime aspect of the project’s vision.
