IIT-Mandi to organize Robotics & AI summer camp for school kids

Registration is open to all students enrolled in classes 11 and 12 at select schools in Himachal Pradesh.

The Indian Institute of Technology Mandi is organising the summer camp on Robotics and Artificial Intelligence (AI) in collaboration with Himachal Pradesh Kaushal Vikas Nigam (HPKVN), Shimla. This summer camp, to be held in July 2022, will give students an opportunity to learn Robotics and AI, an ever-growing field with hands-on experiments-based learning.

Registration is open to all students enrolled in classes 11 and 12 at select schools in Himachal Pradesh. Enrolments will be accepted through schools only. Individual applications will not be entertained. An entrance test based on 10+2 level math, physics, and general aptitude will be conducted on May 1, 2022. Students will be selected for the camp based on the results.

Top 100 selected students will learn:

A) Basic Electronics including, microcontrollers, basics of electronics, using sensors, using DC motor, stepper motor and the servo motor with a microcontroller, network, and Internet of Things (IoT), Wifi and Bluetooth.

B) Basic Programming with basics of any programming language (data types, operators, basic math, conditional statements, loops, functions).

C) Introduction to C++/Python with reference to programming a microcontroller. They will learn to use TinkerCAD to get familiar with programming controllers and the basics of Linux.

D) Fundamentals of Machine Learning and AI that will teach students essential applications like object detection, image segmentation, etc.
E) Introduction to Jetson Platform, use of NVIDIA Jetson Nano to use Machine Learning models like YOLO, ResNet, etc. with no prior knowledge of AI

The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Mandi, will organise a summer camp on Robotics and Artificial Intelligence (AI) in collaboration with the Himachal Pradesh Kaushal Vikas Nigam (HPKVN), Shimla.

A spokesperson for the IIT-Mandi said, “This summer camp, to be held in July this year, will give students an opportunity to learn robotics and AI, an ever-growing field with a hands-on experiment-based learning. As many as 100 students will get a chance to learn the fundamentals and carve out their imagination into real-life projects”.

“Registration is open for all students enrolled in classes XI and XII at recognised schools in Himachal Pradesh. Enrolments will be accepted through schools only. Individual applications will not be entertained,” he added.

“An entrance test based on Class XII-level math, physics and general aptitude will be conducted on May 1. Based on the results of the test, which will be announced in the last week of May, students will be selected for the camp. Those chosen will be invited for a complete training programme on the IIT-Mandi campus,” he said.
