    • Various tasks like,
    • Line follower robot.
    • Obstacle avoider robot.
    • Object follower robot.
    • Photophobic robot.
    • Phototropic robot.
    • Fire fighter robot.
    • Wall Follower.
    • Sound Resistant Robot
    • Mobile Control Robot
    • Boomerang Robot

    Explanation:
    • Line Follower Robot: - As the name suggests our robot in this mode will follow a line. Our robot will follow white line on black surface or vice versa.
    • Obstacle Avoider Robot: - In obstacle avoider robot our robot will sense the obstacle and will change the path accordingly so it wont be colliding with any obstacle.
    • Obstacle Follower Robot: - In obstacle follower robot our robot will sense the obstacle and will follow the object accordingly.
    • Photophobic Robot: - The meaning of “phobia” is to be afraid off, or fear. In photophobic robot our robot will sense the light and will try to move away from light.
    • Phototrophic Robot: - In phototropic robot our robot will sense the light and will try to move towards the light.
    • Fire Fighter Robot: - : Our fire fighting robot will buzz when it will detect fire and also extinguish it.
    • Wall Follower Robot: - We will design our robot in such a way that it will follow wall. Our robot will not move away from wall or wont collide with wall.
    • Sound Resistant Robot: - It will sense the direction from where the sound is coming and move away from it.
    • Mobile Control Robot: - You can control your robot using your mobile phone from any where in the world.
    • Boomerang Robot: - Whenever robot hits the wall it will take 180 degree turn and will come back to you.

    FAQ’S :

    Q: Why is robotics important for my child?
    A: Robotics is a truly multi-disciplinary field which combines mechanical, electrical, electronics and programming domains of science. It is ideal for young students because it exposes them to hands-on applications of math, science, and engineering concepts. In addition, robotics motivates children understand how things work and encourages them to use their creativity and imagination skills during designing robots. India is still to go a long way as far as introduction of practical element in the education system is concerned, which robotics does the fun way.

    Q: What will my child gain from your camp?
    A: RoboJunior aims at “experiencing science and technology through fun way of robotics”. Working towards this aim, the participants will be taught to design, build and program autonomous robots. In the process of learning about robotics, a student will experience the practical aspects of science and technology and develop numerous skills including problem solving, logical reasoning, creativity, communication and selfconfidence To know about the camp content and details of the kit, kindly get in touch with us.

    Q: Can my child build and program robots?

    A: Offcourse. Use of robotics in education i.e. educational robotics is quite a common concept in US, UK and Japan. In these countries young students (11-17 yrs.) have taken to robotics at a very nascent stage of the education. This can be done only through good training and awareness. We will graduate a student from scratch to a complete knowledge of autonomous robotics. After this program each child will be in a position to build and program a robot.

    Q: Do we have to pay for registering?
    A: The camp is a 5 day long paid activity. However, no payment is required for sending in a registration request. Payment is required to be done to confirm the registration.

    Q: Why should we pay such an amount for this camp?
    A: Some highlights of the RoboJunior which would give you an insight into the unique advantages of the camp are:
    • 5-day long program designed by professionals.
    • Building and programming a robot
    • Starter guide with Activity cook book cum CD

    Q: What is so special about the kit?
    A: Few of the salient features that make the kit stand out:
