Our Alumni Akshay Ahuja ECE Batch (2011-15) initiates ‘Build Your Bot’
Over 20,000 children will share the stage in the country’s first and largest ever robotics show to be held in New Delhi in July this year.
Akshay Ahuja, from 2011-2015 batch of Electronics and Communication Engineering from Chitkara University, managed to make his vision a reality.
Ahuja said, “We will have an extensive training of participating children through RoboChamps, an academy being run by Robotics Education World. This event will bring change in education system that is taking all over education on hand-on practice.” Student will start from scratch and make their own line of robots.
While making robots, they will come to know many concepts practically rather that theoretically, he added. “The event has been divided into four levels: Alpha, Beta, Gamma and Omega, each level contributing to the enhancement of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) skills of the participants.
The event was announced on Tuesday at a function, where Panchkula MLA Gian Chand Gupta was the chief guest and Dr Madhu Chitkara graced the occasion with her presence. She applauded the efforts put in by Ahuja and expressed her confidence in her students and alumni.
While speaking on the occasion, he said such initiatives where children get an exposure to practical concepts must be encouraged.
Ahuja added that BYB will be an attempt to find a place in Guinness Book of World Records. Through this event, 20,000 kids will share one stage. Over 500 children from other countries are also expected to be a part of the event.
The event, Build Your Bot (BYB) is being managed by Chandigarh-based Robotics Education World, which is being supported by Delhi-based Young Edsplorer. RoboChamps is an organization engaged in providing robotics and technology-based education to young minds through schooling education in India.
The vision of this event is to strengthen skilled future of technocrats by making practical education an integral part of their learning at an early age. To build a better India with technical education that starts at the grassroots level, making practical learning a habit more than a dream.
