ROBOTEX: Education For The Underprivileged

The world is growing in terms of its knowledge about technology and robotics. There are innovations and discoveries happening every single day, yet there is a fraction of the society which remains completely blocked from such advanced experiences. Yes, we are talking about underprivileged children here. Only 32% of the children in India are able to fully complete their studies, while 99 million children have dropped out of school since 2011. The main reason for such a high drop out rate is due to the severe financial situation underprivileged children have to go through, as well as, the lack of interest caused by the monotonous and rote-learning style used by the majority of the teachers in India. Our mission is to change the idea of rote-learning into hands-on learning while establishing an interest in science in these young minds. Our former President, Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam and the current ISRO chief Dr. K Sivan are real-life examples of starting from being “an underprivileged child” to the most knowledgeable and respectable professionals in India. Your small contribution towards our cause can ignite a small spark in the next “Kalam” or in the next “Sivan.”
Our aim to conducts as many workshops as possible in rural and urban villages all over India to achieve our mission. The workshops will include a basic introduction to electronics and physics by making a remote-controlled robot with children. The car made using the concepts learned, in the workshop, will allow them to think outside the box and try to make implement those concepts in their real life. Along with this, we will conduct sessions on methods of brainstorming and implementation of ideas. Through this, the students will be a step closer to converting their ideas into reality. The funds will mainly be required for the components in the remote-controlled car. We are just the messengers of this cause, but we will need your help to ensure that the potential in all of these young minds is shown to the whole world.
Robotex has been co-founded by Shivaditya Bose, Aryan Jain, and Sammarth Kumar.

Robotex has initiated two projects simultaneously, which aims to increase awareness  about robotics and technology among underprivileged children. We continue with our original project of conducting workshops. As a matter of fact, we recieved parts for 30 robotics kits this week and will start conducting workshops in Delhi from the first week of November.

Our second project is a passive robotics arm, which is currently in the second prototyping stage. The arm is an all aluminium arm extender, working simply using strings and springs. The kit will be for students studying in classes 6,7,and 8.

Lastly, we would like to welcome our newest member, Aryan Jain, to the team. Aryan is a science enthusiast, who has always been keen about programming and electronics. Currently students in 11th, Aryan will be focusing on the passive arm project. Along with this, he will also be conducting workshops with Sammarth Kumar and Shivaditya Bose from the second week of November.
