The EduLogix, an initiative of the Institute for Industrial Technology (IIT), aims at addressing the huge deficiency in S.T.E.M education among senior secondary school students and leavers of science and technical orientation. This initiative intends to provide short quality training that would positively affect the lives of many students, creating an undying interest in S.T.E.M and TVET within them, and lead them to careers that can address issues in the Nigerian technological environment.
Another aspect of this initiative is to help students realise the practical application of S.T.E.M in solving day-to-day challenges. To bring S.T.E.M to reality is a key aspect of this initiative.
This initiative also tends to address issues around student’s personal effectiveness and leadership. Students will be help to realise how they can lead themselves and others. Personal effectiveness and leadership modules from the International Youth Foundation (IYF) skills curriculum will be implemented.
IIT would implement the EduLogix initiative through a hybrid model i.e., a combination of in-class and online training.
Following a project-based approach, available training modules for now are:
- Domestic Controls [Electrical]
- Creative Technologies [Electronics, Internet of Things (IoT), & Associated Programming etc.]
- IN-TECH Workshop [Fabrication, Electrical, & Industrial Automation]
- Ability to execute basic electrical, electronic or/and IoT projects.
- Develop fundamental knowledge of industrial automation.
- Develop appreciable skills in associated programming.
- Develop appriciable skills in fabrication.
- Ability to communicate using technical terms.
- Strengthen ability to work in teams.
- Ability to apply personal effectiveness principles to day-to-day activities.
- Strengthen ability to lead oneself and others.
- Start Date: First round starts August 7th, 2021.
