Robotics program is our application of technology to solve problems that we feel the tribals hold special engineering capabilities. As an example, the tribal communities here make their own houses with mud and kothi to keep their crops secure.
We are using this cultural capital in the field of mechatronics with a focused four year course that covers manual robotics,wireless robotics ,Opensource Programming, Internet of Things, PCB Designing, Product Development, App development and artificial intelligence.
Teams from Riverside and Government Middle School, Phulsagar where we piloted this program won the best robot design award at IIT-Indore's Techfest.
It is our endeavour to keep finding more such departments of excellence with children in thecoming years where a little focused effort can yield excellent results.
