We started the UWAS’ smart workshop series to provide education to our members. The first of these workshops was conducted on 27 January to teach participants how to make a simple step tracker and create simple digital games with accelerometer using micro:bit.
This was held at EASB and the participants gave good comments and all of them were happy with the workshop.
Check HERE for more about this first activity of Smart Workshop.

Participants: Seniors in the Community
Cost: Minimal depending on venue rental
Venue: ITE Central
Class size: ±30 participants
Sessions: 4 classes (either English or Mandarin) per module Age group: Seniors and those with limited or no computer skills

Due to popular demand, our IT circle trainers have already conducted another 3 rounds of 4 sessions each for senior participants this year.
Feedback received from ITE’s program coordinator: “ Participants were impressed that UWAS trainers provided personalised support and one-on-one coaching. They truly enjoyed the course and would like to thank all trainers & UWAS for offering not only great learning sessions to increase the IT knowledge of Seniors in a friendly, non-threatening environment.
