A badminton court was the destination for little learners of The Somaiya School as the engineering students of K.J.Somaiya College of Engineering; Vidyavihar demonstrated their creation – robots playing badminton. The team that fabricated these robots recently participated in ABU-ROBOCON 2015, a national level robotics event. Out of 84 teams that participated in the event, the Team KJSCE qualified into the Super League of 26 teams.
The engineering students held a special demonstration for the School children from The Somaiya School.
K.J.Somaiya College of Engineering encourages students to participate in local and international competitions, to stretch their abilities, and equip them with soft skills, knowledge and practical experience way beyond the curriculum.
We encourage our students to try different things,” says Dr. Shubha Pandit, Principal K.J.Somaiya College of Engineering We believe that these experiences not only teach the practical problems in implementing technologies but also enable a holistic personal development. This is sometimes life-changing.
Says Rushi Seth, robotic team captain, “In this project student from across streams have worked together from mechanical, electrical and telecom, this thus is a great learning. We have learned to work in teams, and we have learned about logistics, time management, budget management and project management. We are learning to work with other streams and see what we can learn from them,” This multidisciplinary approach provided a much higher degree of freedom
Ms. Kavita Vaidya Principal, The Somaiya School said “This demonstration by students of engineering will inspire and enthuse children and will awaken interest in Science, Technology, Engineering, Math and Science in a fun, interactive and team-building environment. Being part of a campus, our students get to learn and inspire from the success of Somaiya Vidyavihar College students. They get opportunities to see such demonstrations that would be difficult otherwise.
