Robotics Summer Camp @ CCE's India facility
We conducted a summer camp from April 30th to May 11th 2018 at our India facility for kids of grades 7-11. Although the camp was open to everyone, including kids of employees, the focus was to expose kids being supported by our charitable foundation to Robotics, who otherwise might not have the exposure to STEM concepts or Robotics as part of their curriculum. We had a total of 6 kids enrolled for the camp.
The camp was designed and conducted entirely by employee volunteers. Kids were exposed to fundamental concepts of physics, electrical, mechatronics and CAD in a fun environment. They used CAD tools to generate ideas and creating designs. By the end of the camp, the kids, with the help of their mentors, created working models of 4-5 different types of robots and had the opportunity to demo their robots and field questions in an expo-like setting. Certificates of achievement were distributed to all the kids for successful completion of the camp.
