Underwater robotics at Shanti Bhavan? Yeah!!


Today has been a busy day for our UdiGitalEdu team at Shanti Bhavan. We conducted an incredible underwater robotics workshop in a fountain at the school. 


An amazing activity considering that we are in a rural area of South India. The robot is made with low cost materials by high school kids in Catalonia. Shanti Bhavan children teleoperated the underwater vehicle and learned concepts of robotics and physics. They also used an underwater camera and a monitor to view what was happening under the water. Tomorrow we will repeat the experience with more kids.

We truly believe in the power of robotics to encourage creativity, critical thinking and teamwork.
