Robotics is a field of engineering that deals with design and application of robots and the use of computer for manipulating and processing them. As a subject, it is slowly coming out of high-end research & development units of government agencies and large enterprises to classrooms and technical institutes in India.
There’s no arguing that robotics is still in its nascent stage in India, but for most young achievers, applying the laws of physics, engineering and computer science in solving the problem and assembling the robot is becoming the fun way of learning.
Take the case of 13-year-old creators of X-sight – a robotic air hockey game for the visually impaired – Arvind Ranganathan & Nikeet Dharia from Ecole Mondial World School and Hemani Kalucha from Dhirubhai Ambani School.
