The project “Gammeddata IEEE Api” is an initiative of the IEEE PES SB Chapter of the University of Moratuwa and is organized in collaboration with the Industry Applications Society (IAS), Robotics and Automation Society (RAS), Industrial Electronics Society (IES) Student Branch Chapters and the IEEE Student Branch of the University of Moratuwa. The main objective of this project is to lend a helping hand to the enthusiastic school children who live in Sri Lanka to have exposure to trending technology-related topics. For the year 2022, the project has been organized as “Gammeddata IEEE Api – phase 3” with its proud and awarded history of Darrel Chong Student Activity Award, Silver Category for phase 1 and Gold for phase 2.
The “Gammeddata IEEE Api – phase 3” launched as a webinar series conducted for four days on various technology-related topics that are trending in the world including Python programming language, Sensors and actuators, DIY projects. As the event had to be conducted during the pandemic, it had been conducted as a virtual event via Zoom during 26-27 March and 2-3 April 2022 from 2.30 PM to 9.30 PM. The experienced young professionals and undergraduates had enlightened the sessions. The sessions were conducted in both Sinhala and Tamil languages to overcome the language barriers as the students had participated around Sri Lanka. Around 70+ volunteers had joined in volunteering to pave the path to the success of this project and around 6000+ registrations for the sessions had proven that phase 3 had reached higher success in this “Gammeddata IEEE Api” journey.
Finally, it can be concluded that the great effort put into action by identifying the necessity to encourage and support those future engineers had added new value and knowledge to their lives to carry out their endeavors and the future of technical industries of our country.
