At the heart of ARIC will be a comprehensive autonomous curriculum using Duckietown.
The Duckietown program is an open source, worldwide initiative developed at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) to provide state-of-the-art, hands-on, and inclusive AI and robotics education for all students.
The Duckiebot platform was designed to make learning about AI and robotics fun and interactive, lowering the barrier to entry for students of all ages and backgrounds. It also teaches student about coding languages, file systems and frameworks including Python, Docker and Linux.
MAGIC, with the help of the Duckietown curriculum and volunteer industry experts, is developing curriculum to introduce students to autonomous robotics concepts beginning in elementary school.
