The camp is intended to introduce school students to the exhilarating and intriguing world of Robotics.

A first of its kind camp in Bangalore, the summer camp is spread across six days and aimed at enhancing the logical thinking and creativity of the students.

For Rohith Gaurav, a ninth standard student of Sindhi High School, the camp has been a different experience altogether as he is also preparing with full fervour for the forthcoming Sumo robotic gaming competition.

For George, an eighth standard Delhi Public School student, the camp is informative as well as interesting and the concepts taught can be easily associated with what he has learnt  at school. “I was on cloud nine when my  robot worked for the first time”, says the beaming 14 year old.

Pranav, a standard eight student of Frank Anthony Public School excitedly tells that since he now knows the basics, he can try his hand at making different kinds of robots at home.

The camp is being arranged by Reliance World in collaboration with ThinkLABS
According to Katya Nadgouda from the organisers, the children have to start from scratch while making the robots and the concepts taught here enable the children to understand their school curriculum in a practical and application- based method.  

Srinivas, a second year PUC student of Sri Bhagavan Mahaveer Jain College adds that since the camp is for just two hours a day, he can attend tuitions on a regular basis and also enjoy learning the science of robot- making.

Kshiteesh Kulkarni, a robot enthusiast and the trainer at Web world is highly optimistic that the realm of robotics is the future of the world.  

Having made the robots work at their will  and and having learnt the nuances of robot- making in a fun- filled manner, the kids were a happy lot.
