Date: 11th August, Saturday.

Venue: EdBrand Office, 301 Crosspoint, Gurugram. 

Time: 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM

Requirements: Make sure to get a fully charged laptop with WiFi access

Project management and planning can be difficult at the best of times. The logframe is a project management tool that can be used to design, implement, monitor and evaluate a project. Completed logical frameworks form the basis of a project plan and can be used as a reference tool for on-going reporting. 

While the Logframe originated from a planning approach used by the US military, and was later adopted by USAid in the 1960s for development projects, it can be applied in a host of other areas. 

The aim of this workshop is to teach participants how to use a Logframe to aid project planning and ensure project efficiency. The Logframe can be particularly helpful tool for students when they are initiating their own business projects, community projects and research papers.

Map through Data workshop

Connected World.jpg

Name

We are delighted to invite you to a Data Mapping workshop using Geographic Information Systems (GIS)

GIS is an integrated collection of software and data used to visualize and organize geographic data, conduct spatial analysis, and create maps and other geospatial information. Simply put, GIS lets you add spatial information and create digital maps on your computer. An important feature of GIS is that you can associate information (non-geographical data) with places (geographical data). 

Date: 11th August, Saturday.

Venue: EdBrand Office, 301 Crosspoint, Gurugram. 

Time: 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM

Requirements: Make sure to get a fully charged laptop with WiFi access

GIS can show you things about your data and how they are related in space. For example, mapping the data of patients treated in a state can show a pattern of disease outbreak and how it varies with values such as age group, sex of the patient etc.  During natural disasters, raster data can be useful to show where the impacted areas are. Town planners can use raster data from satellites to see where informal settlements are and to help in planning infrastructure

Through this workshop, you will learn how to use QGIS, a user friendly Open Source Geographic Information System (GIS). We will explore the basics of mapping geographical spaces using both vector data (latitudes and longitudes) and raster data (grid values, photographs from satellites), and of adding non-geographical attributes to the maps.

Invitation to Rohan Nagpal's Workshop on Programming & Simulations

It is our pleasure to invite you to a workshop on Object-Oriented Programming and Simulations.

During our first Nature of Code workshop, we introduced participants to Processing.js, the fundamentals of Object Oriented Programming, and random walks. Our second workshop in the series builds upon the foundational concepts introduced in the first. This workshop will focus on Euclidean Vectors: mathematical objects that have both magnitude and direction. Over the course of the workshop we will introduce students to the concept of a vector, manually carry out elementary vector operations, and finally leverage this newfound knowledge to create both non-interactive and interactive computer simulations

Note: This workshop is for students only. Students who are curious to know more about programming and haven't had much experience with it are welcome to join. We are keeping the prerequisite knowledge for the workshop to the bare minimum.

 

About the Speaker

 

Rohan Nagpal is a recent graduate of Harvey Mudd College with a deep interest in entrepreneurship and technology. Having interned at upcoming startups in Silicon Valley, he has gained valuable insights into both of those fields.

Invitation to Rohan Nagpal's Workshop on Programming & Randomness

It is our pleasure to invite you to a workshop on Object-Oriented Programming and Randomness.

 

Over four hours on Sunday, the 15th of July, we will go over an introduction to ProcessingJS, the fundamentals of Object-Oriented Programming pertinent to the workshop material, and an introduction to the concept of randomness. We will put all of these together to implement simulations of various kinds of one and two-dimensional random walks, and if time permits move on to a more organic application of randomness, Perlin Noise.

 

The concept of a random walk has myriad applications: ascertaining the probability of a team/individual winning a tournament, the price of a stock over time, funds at the disposal of a gambler, and paths of molecules travelling through liquids and gases. That being said, the best way to see how the concept is applicable to various processes is to write simulations. This workshop is a primer to doing just that.

 

Note: This workshop is for students only. Students who are curious to know more about programming and haven't had much experience with it are welcome to join. We are keeping the prerequisite knowledge for the workshop to the bare minimum.

PSAT Diagnostic Test & Counseling Session

We would like to invite our grades 9 and 10 students for a diagnostic Preliminary SAT that is being conducted in association with Tutela on the weekend of 26th and 27th May which will be followed up by a one-to-one counselling session at our office for analysis and discussion on the weekend of 2nd and 3rd June.

This is especially important for students who aspire to take the PSAT later this year in October and eventually intend to take standardised tests like the SAT and ACT. We hope that this session will provide much-needed insights in directing students' focus on improving their comprehension and math skills.

Why take the PSAT?

  • PSAT helps students in identifying their subject strengths and weaknesses before they begin their preparation for the SAT and the ACT in 11th grade
  • A good PSAT score can prove to be valuable in summer school admissions and in having a sense of where the student stands among a global student body.

Test Details

  • STRUCTURE: A full-length PSAT designed on the standard testing pattern
  • DATE: 26th May, 2018 (Saturday) OR 27th May, 2018 (Sunday)
  • TIME: 10:00 AM
  • VENUE: Tutela Center- C-22B Super Mart 1, DLF Phase IV, Gurugram, Haryana 122002
  • RESULT: The test score-card will be sent via email within two days
  • COUNSELLING SESSION- A one-on-one counselling session with the parents to discuss the student's performance in depth will be held at the EdBrand Cross Point office on 2nd June 2018 (Saturday) OR 3rd June 2018 (Sunday) between 10:00 AM  and 4:00 PM

Choosing Between SAT & ACT: Diagnostic & Counselling

It is that time of the year when students start planning their college application process. One major factor which might be a hindrance to this process is deciding whether to take the SAT or the ACT. 

Why is it important to choose the right test?

Choosing the right standardized test makes an enormous difference to a student's college application experience: identifying the subjects a student is more comfortable with and being tested on a skill set that better matches his/her strengths, can immensely ease the study burden and boost the chances of a high score.

Plan Of Action

To provide assistance in this regard, EdBrand, in association with Tutela, is organising an SAT vs. ACT Diagnostic Test to help students make an informed decision regarding the right test .

Test Details

  • STRUCTURE: A condensed test for SAT, ACT as well as Essay Writing, designed on the standard testing pattern
  • DATE: 26th May, 2018(Saturday) OR 27th May, 2018(Sunday)
  • TIME: 10:00 AM
  • VENUE: Tutela Center- C-22B Super Mart 1, DLF Phase IV, Gurugram, Haryana 122002
  • RESULT: The test score-card will be sent via email within two days
