We at Just Robotics are a fun bunch. We say that with a lot of pride, and joy. So, one day our CEO decided to mentor kids or anyone aged above 8 years of age to enter Robotics Competitions, and more importantly win them.
If you ask him, he’ll say “the important bit is to enter competition” but we at Just Robotics understand the pure exhilarating joy of winning and the immense efforts that is required to do so. The various factors that contribute to a win is many, and you’ve to be better at all of them than the next team, on that particular day within the prescribed rules and regulations and still one’s not guaranteed a victory and we at Just Robotics know this feeling all too well.
Precisely why we decided to open up our office to ‘Mentoring’ teams for various Robotics Competitions. And when we say ‘open up’, we mean it; we’d kids going back home at 11:30 in the dead of the night. After having spent close to 6–8 hours tweaking, and re-tweaking their bots, in-terms of design, the working and strategizing based on the rules of Robo-War Competition.
