The weekend was a fun and tech buzzing affair at the Innovative labs at MTN Towers last weekend, as kids from 10 different primary schools showcased their tech abilities and talents in building robots from scratch at the MTN Junior robotics camp. Thanks to the mentoring of Solomon King (middle in featured image above) a renown roboticist and “Resident Fundi” at FundiBots, the Kids were able to come up with amazing ideas and surely they were all winners. Speaking at the closing ceremony Susan Kayemba, Retention and Social media manager thanked the Headteachers and Parents for supporting their children during the 3-day event. She said;
“What we wanted to do is to inspire the children using science and tech. That is what the future is about. The digital economy is the driver of the 21st century Lets embrace it . As the leading tech brand, we aim to champion innovation. The worlds biggest economies are thriving on innovation. What I have seen is a combination of 10 schools it doesn’t matter where kids are coming from they are all winners. We are humbled and pleased by what we have seen in the past 3 days and All the materials used in this training will be donated to the schools that took part. ”
