Qurious Mind began its second year at Shantiniketan School, Kolhapur. Year 2016-17 was a success story with all its programs getting high appreciation from School Management, Teachers, Parents and most of all from students. Qurious Mind was invited to continue its CBP (Capability Building Program) for standard 9 as well. Qurious Mind also added a new program "Brain Development Center" which focuses on logic development using innovative approach for primary students. This was not possible without expanding the team. Four new teachers joined Qurious Mind to deliver its innovative programs for year 2017-18.
Qurious Mind conducted a Robotics Workshop in Marathi during a summer camp organised by Kalasangam. It was a very satisfying experience to see the joy on the faces of little #qurious minds after making their first robot.
During the event we also got an opportunity to interact with parents on how to prepare children for ever changing technological challenges and how to make studies interesting.It was very well received by the parents.
Qurious Mind conducted Four Training in April 2017. Two of the same were part of the VIBGYOR, Kolhapur Summer Camp while two more were conducted at the Qurious Mind facilities in Kolhapur. 18 students attended the Robotics Construction Level 1 Training at VIBGYOR, Kolhapur. Total 15 Robot designs were made by children and the designs were center of attraction during the culmination ceremony. You can watch the video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gx6Is01B2pM
Robotics Programming Level 1 Training was conducted at Qurious Mind facilities where children learned the basics of programming and programmed from simple motor functionalities to the functions such as Line Follower, Edge Avoider etc. using sensors. Unique feature of the program was the use of Arduino Libraries which are part of the Qurio Fire Autonomous Robotic Kit.
Qurious Mind also conducted first of its kind Android App development training for school children. Children made three Apps and learned to make many more using single screen Apps, Multi-screen Gaming App and use of Orientation sensor.
