Hyderabad: “I have seen robots in movies. But, I never imagined that I would get an opportunity to learn coding and robotic technology at school level itself”, says an excited Sowmya. Thanks to the Robotic Laboratory at our social welfare residential Narsingi school, I have designed a smart irrigation system on my own, using robotic technology”, said the student beaming with pride. Another student, Srujana of 7th class who was part of a robotic class said “I aspire to become a robotic scientist in future. My aim is to design robos which will reduce suffering of old age people from debilitating chronic conditions”.
Dr RS Praveen Kumar, Secretary, launched a colourful Tech Event at TSWR school Narsingi on Thursday. Students won admiration of the visitors for displaying innovative projects on automatic streetlights, smart garbage maintenance, irrigation and alert systems. It’s a matter of pride that the social welfare residential students participated in Robotic expos organised at prestigious IIT colleges and national level event organized in association with Lawrence Technological University, USA, the secretary, remarked.
Speaking on the occasion, he said, Robotics, IOT and STEM subjects were introduced in the regular school curriculum to promote critical thinking and designing skills among underprivileged students and make them job-ready in the 21st century. The TSWREIS launched Robotic Labs at Narsingi school in the year 2016 in collaboration with Jay Robotix, Hyderabad.
Over 30 schools involving more than 30,000 students were covered under this programme in the last two years. The Society is planning to cover all its 269 institutions in the coming years to ensure robotic technology accessible to poor students and make the residential institutions as technological and innovative hubs.
