Presenting to you BEGIN-O-ROBOTICS, a new discipline in the ever growing field of Robotics. 

This workshop will provide school students a base to mobile/GSM robotics. They will learn the Automation technology and get better understanding and grip on its application. They will be developing their own models by their own hands. These projects focus on the application and use of technology rather than their internal working so that a person can grasp the concepts well. Attendees will be provided with instructions to build and manage their own robotics kit.

Manual Robotics is a manual remote control robot which works & moves on the instruction of human with the help of a wired Remote.  A Line Follower Robot is a well known application of robot where a Robot follows a black/white line on an arena. A Pick & Place Robot is again a well known application of robot where in a manual controlled robot can pick the object and place it whereever you want.

This workshop will provide the rich hands-on experience to the participants on designing the three different kinds of robots (Manual Robot, Line Follower Robot and Pick & Place Robot) in a single workshop.
