The Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay (IITB) has launched the 2023-24 edition of the coveted e-Yantra Robotics Competition (eYRC 2023-24), to upskill students through ‘Project Based Learning’. The annual competition takes participants through a 6-month long session using a ‘learn by doing’ approach and a rigorous collaborative schedule. The theme for this year’s edition is ‘The Space Beyond’. There are various hardware-based themes with free robotic kits for select participants.

Prof. Kavi Arya, the Principal Investigator of e-Yantra believes in changing the attitude of students from “knowledge consumers” to “knowledge creators.” 

He said, “In today’s fast-changing world led by AI and other emerging technological tools, it is imperative that we invest more on training young minds to have a broader entrepreneurial outlook in life. They should be encouraged to take up issues with a mindset to create new knowledge and solutions that can have a bigger societal impact. e-Yantra has always strived to engage young minds in novel entrepreneurial endeavours that goes beyond traditional modes of textbook learning. Our goal is to create “student innovators for local disruption.’”
