Startup Inventrom is educating Goan students on the concepts of robotics during the ongoing lockdown. The company’s Inventrom Robotics app teaches robotics, software programming and electronics via animated videos. The app is free to limited students and is facilitated by Goa Board through its website. It can also be accessed through Google Playstore.
It is for students from 5th to 10th standard and aimed at helping students learn the concepts of robotics, electronics circuit design, mechanical hardware design and software programming.
Vinayak Joshi, heading the electronics team at Inventrom responsible for creating the content of the app said that the training is designed to teach the concepts to school students in a step by step manner and also lets the students practice their learning via a simulator where they can write a code to control the robot. “The students also have an option to buy the robotics hardware kit and use the skills learned from the mobile app to build real-life robots.”
Pranav Kundaikar, chief technical officer, Inventrom said “With the schools being shut, parents are looking for ways for the students to continue learning and make the best of this difficult time. Keeping this in mind, we have made our popular robotics android app available to the students
