Red Hat Open Source for Education (ROSE)

Apr 23, 2020 | News, Tel Aviv

The ROSE (Red Hat Open Source for Education) Project is a cross-community effort that brings students from Tira together with students from Raanana to the Red Hat offices in Israel to learn about the Linux operating system and Python programming. The students spent six months on a weekly basis working and learning together. As a final project, the students are programming a race car with artificial intelligence using Python. The race car would have to recognize the race track, the obstacles, and the bonus areas; calculate the best path to take to avoid the pitfalls; and collect bonus points. The car would move autonomously on the screen within the race track game with no interference from the students. No joystick or mouse would be used. How well the car was programmed to respond determined its movements. Students received instant feedback on how well they programmed their cars because the cars with the high scores were those programmed to respond better than the others. If the car moved erroneously or erratically, there were errors in the code.
