Day 2 – Bhuj Workshop

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I disassembled the robotic kits that I made yesterday so that they could be used again today. This has been a big learning for me. It may have be easy to take as many kits as the number of children but many children in other schools await such opportunity therefore it is necessary that the same resources be spread to cover more children hence the kits had to be reused. This added resource management angle to the workshop which is a learning!

Some of the robotic kits, I realised, were not used to making durable robots so after yesterday’s workshop, I was left with 2 out of 4 robots of each type as remaining were either malfunctioning or had parts that were missing.Even though robotics kits in the scheme of ┬áLine Follower or Obstacle Avoider were selected with assembling and reassembling in mind but they could not stand the test of handling and tinkering.

People who are conducting such workshops should remember  that these kits at the end of the day are parts curated from China, India or some such tech manufacturing hub where eye is to manufacture to scale and not to quality.
