ACI has announced an initiative aimed at exposing school kids in Ibadan to robotics.In a chat with IBPulse.com, Mr. Olaoluwa Balogun, founder of the initiative said a total of 40 schools would be visited in order to reach 2,000 students in all.
“We intend visiting each school 4 times and each day we will visit 8 schools,” he told IBPulse.
He also announced that the programme would kick off in October and they are hoping to raise $150,000 for it. A total of 800 robotics instructors would be involved in this project.
“The robotics kits are quite expensive,” he said. “Transportation is another thing and we are not paying instructors, they will be doing it on a volunteering basis,” he said.
