Pathways School Gurgaon organises Robotics fest
This October, many schools from Delhi NCR flocked to Pathways School Gurgaon for the third annual Pathways Gurgaon Inter-school Robotics fest called 'Robongiers' in the second week of October. The competing schools included Pathways World School, Aravali, Amity International School, Gurgaon; Manav Rachna International School, Faridabad; Amity International School, Noida; Scottish High International School, Gurgaon; Manav Rachna International School, Gurgaon; Manav Rachna International School, Charmwood; Suncity World School and the host school - Pathways School Gurgaon.

The event was graced by Capt Rohit Bajaj, School Director, Pathways School Gurgaon and Mr Prashant Jain, Director, Pathways Schools. The competition was declared open by Capt Rohit Bajaj by lighting the lamp.

Encouraging students, Capt. Rohit Bajaj said, 'There is aFantasy League football certain untapped resource within us, called potential. This event is being hosted to tap this untapped potential'. Mr Prashant Jain sharedhis words of wisdom with the students and said  'It's not always about the end product. It is about the process and the building because that is what makes it possible for the result to happen again'.

This was followed by a performance by Pathways students on a Baroque composition 'Canon' by J.S. Bach. This was followed by another fun performance 'I've Got a Robot', a rap and a songthat was sung by the students of grade six students. The last performance was a medley dance electric music and an old song, '(I've had) The Time of My Life'.

Soon, the competition started. The first round was an 'Electronics' round, where all the teams had to build their own small light-following robot that would sense and follow the light of a torch.  In the next round, students were given a situation where passengers of a plane crash were stranded in the forest, and the robots, which were to be built of lego, needed to be built and programmed to travel through a maze and pick up these passengers.

The competition was organised to challenge logical thinking, creativity and problem-solving skills of the students. Robongiers engaged students at a much deeper level and hands-on applications and creative design were required to accomplish the task.

It was an experience unlike any that they have ever encountered. The students worked hard during the two days, motivated and determined to prove themselves; thereby fulfilling the purpose of this competition - tapping the untapped potential within us.

Manav Rachna International School, Faridabad clinched the trophy.
