GREAT ADVENTURE

CALLED  LIFE

Dieter F. Uchtdorf

The EDventure programme puts together opportunities made available to us by external organisations. Step out of your comfort zone and visit higher education institutes, participate in hands-on workshops and talk to professors and current university students. Through this, you will get a clearer picture of the prospective university you would like to enter as well as a better sense of which prospective course of study you would like to pursue in the future.

1/   Save the date

Ensure that you are able to commit for the program you have signed up for. Seek excuse from lessons or CCA if you need to.

 

2/   Put on your best behaviour

Every action by you will reflect well / not so well on the school.

3/   Go with an open mind

Be proactive, ask questions, take photos so that you are able to make full use of the opportunity given.

 

4/   Be safe

Activities conducted by the external organiser might be outdoors, in a laboratory or have some degree of physical exertion, so be alert and protect yourself.

EDventurer's code of conduct

We appreciate any photos taken to be sent to us via email (zhou_yefeng@moe.edu.sg) so that your juniors will have a better idea of what to expect for recurring activities.

These are some of the questions that they will be exploring.

Students will then go through some basic code in a tutorial-like Google Colab notebook and learn how image data can be loaded in Python. The resulting images are used to train a convolutional neural network in Keras for cat versus dog image classification. At the end of it, students can upload their own images, and the trained model will tell them if it is a cat or a dog.
