In April 2012, Fundi Bots had its first ever Robotics Camp at Nabisunsa Girls School. To the best of our knowledge, it was also the first Robotics Camp in the country. We had over 35 students from various secondary schools, and a volunteer team of 5 facilitators and teachers.
Over the course of three days, students were taught the basics of electronics assembled their first ever robot and programmed the machine to move and navigate around the laboratory. It was an exhilirating time for both the students and the teachers as they watched machines come to life and move based on commands that they had given.
The documentary below was filmed during the camp and some interviews were filmed afterwards. It gives a pretty solid idea of what Fundi Bots is about and the experiences that our students, teachers and guests share during their time with us. We hope you enjoy the video.
Fundi Bots – www.fundibots.com – is a non-profit working with students in Ugandan schools. Fundi Bots is focusing on the promotion, exposure, experimentation and technological growth in the fields of electronics and robotics.
This documentary was shot during our Robotics Camps in April 2012, which took place at Nabisunsa Girls School.
