robotics education India

Jay Robotix Pvt Ltd, a multidimensional robotics firm has today launched a RoboLab at Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya School in Nalagonda District, Andhra Pradesh state of India. In a first of its kind initiative Jay Robotix has extended its technical and training expertise of Robotics education to the Government schools.

This Robolab set up by Jay Robotix, with support from the school management and the alumni of Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya School, Chalakruthy Camp, Nalgonda will help the school students to further strengthen their academic knowledge by enhancing their soft skills through hands-on practical learning experience. With this initiative the company aims to encourage practical learning in government schools across Andhra Pradesh through robotic labs and make modern education accessible to all and not restricting Robotics to the students of only private schools.

Under this initiative Jay Robotix will provide 10 units of Docile-X robots and upgrade the schools’ computer laboratories with 10 units of licensed RoboGuru trademarked software, developed indigenously by Jay Robotix. The robotics labs will enable around 470 students of the school, to learn the concepts of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) practically by applying the concepts on a Robot. The company has not only set up this Robolab at a highly subsidised cost but will bear the cost of the maintenance of the robots for one full year. It will also provide training to the school faculty on robotics concepts.

RoboLab is an Activity Based Learning (ABL) laboratory consisting of advanced robots which can be used in experiments by the students in a comfortable school environment. Most of the advanced robots have been developed in-house at Jay Robotix by its efficient technical team. Each robot device is accompanied with RoboGuru set along with a detailed curriculum which enlists a description of a comprehensive set of STEM concepts for the students.

JAY Robotix has already set up four Robolabs and is also in the process of setting up Robolabs in other schools.

Commenting on the initiative Mr.Brahmaputra Reddy, Principal, Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya school in Nalagonda, said, "We are thankful to JAY ROBOTIX and to our alumni for providing us this wonderful opportunity to our students. The opportunity has come at a very right time for our students as we were keen to further strengthen our technology infrastructure for the students. The lab will provide a great foundation for our students to not only learn Robotics but also excel in other academic areas and gain hands-on practical experience."

On introducing Robotics education in India, Mr. Sudhir Reddy, Managing Director, Jay Robotix said, "It is our vision to enable technology aided processes to enhance our education system. With this initiative we are now extending our support to the government schools; to make robotics accessible for all. We see a huge need in the education sector where practical learning can be instilled in an easy and fun way through Robotics. We are planning to set up Robolabs in more schools and colleges across the country."
