Arduino and Micro:bit
For Secondary 1 Students
The Sustainable Singapore Blueprint outlines our national vision and plans for a more liveable and sustainable Singapore, to support the diverse needs and growing aspirations of Singaporeans. This blueprint is a plan for action and provides all of us a unique opportunity to work together to create a better home, a better environment, and a better future that we can all be proud of.
Our vision is for Singapore to be
- A Liveable and Endearing Home
- A Vibrant and Sustainable City
- An Active and Gracious Community
Raspberry Pi and Python
For Secondary 2 Students
What does it mean to be an inclusive society?
It means upgrading and restructuring our economy so that we can sustain growth, create better jobs in every vocation and enable Singaporeans to earn better incomes.
We have to depend less on foreign labour and more on higher skills, innovation and productivity to drive our economy.
It means more help for children from poorer homes to overcome early disadvantages, find their strengths and develop to their fullest potential, so that we keep social mobility up.
Equally, we have to help our elderly live well, and provide stronger support for Singaporeans with disabilities – they all have a part in our nation’s progress and must share in its fruits.
Join us in this 2-day hackathon to explore important issues of sustainability and inclusiveness in our society through coding and physical making. Create solutions by prototyping using micro-controllers such as the Arduino, Micro:bit and Raspberry Pi. Better understand the issues and how you can help beyond the hackathon.
