Register for the Workshop


Though the circuitry and coding may lead you to believe otherwise, Robotics is essentially a Mechanical Engineering domain. Quark brings you a one-of-a-kind mechanical-based, hands-on Robotics workshop - free from complicated wires and terrifying lines of code. Pneumatics is the main principle used in the construction of this Robotic Arm. 

Pneumatics deals with the study and application of pressurized gas to produce mechanical motion, the application of which renders Robots much more efficient. The workshop not only teaches you Pneumatics, but will also lay a strong foundation in the avant-garde domain of Robotics. It is an ideal opportunity for new-comers to set foot into the wonderful world of robotics and for the regulars to learn a new technology!

So this Quark, delve deep into the world of pneumatics . Learn from the experts who have represented India at an International Level . 

Dates: February ,2013

Duration:16 hours spread over 2 days.

Venue: BITS Pilani,K.K. Birla Goa Campus.
