Earlier this year, a Second Foundation train-the-trainer workshop series took place for for five #AmritaVidyalayam school teachers on #robotics with #LegoMindstorms. One teacher in particular, Mr. Ramakrishna Harish from Amrita Vidyalayam New Delhi, became passionate about teaching robotics for school children and participated further in an immersive training at AMMACHI Labs. Upon returning to Delhi, he worked with team members Kavin, Vishnu and Vennila remotely over video-conference to discuss strategies and solutions for preparing children for competitive robotics. Mr. Harish is now teaching the latest and most updated curriculum in competitive robotics with Lego Mindstorms for Amrita Vidyalayam students in 6th, 7th and 8th grades.
This training has prepared the students for the World Robotics Olympiad (#WRO2017) and several other inter-school competitions earlier this year. Recently, a student team took part in Robocup Junior 2017-18 and bagged 1st Place in the Delhi NCR region as well as the best overall performance award. The team has now progressed to the nationals.
This collaborative effort between Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham and Amrita Vidyalayam schools signifies amazing future prospects for students in robotics.
We are proud of our student teams and wish them all the very best for the nationals! #Robocup #Robotics #SecondFoundation #robotics4good
