Team Kidobotikz is happy to announce that Kidobotikz won yet another award from a prestigious industrial body. This reiterates the fact that our core philosophy of taking the knowledge of robotics and skill development to the young generation has struck a chord at the highest echelons of the industry.
Kidobotikz was awarded with the “Exemplary Application of IT” award by CII for its revolutionary efforts in digitizing the process of teaching robotics to young students.
Aligned with the Central government’s Digital India initiative, the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) and the Government of Tamil Nadu jointly organised ‘Connect 2016’ - an international conference and exhibition to discuss current and futuristic plans to boost the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) ecosystem in Tamil Nadu.

As a part of the pitch, Kidobotikz had enumerated its efforts in usage of the IT Skills in the education space. Kidobotikz had conveyed to the CII panel the facets of its digital platform which enabled the access of technical education to school students. Apart from this, the panel was made aware of the various efforts undertaken by Kidobotikz to ensure opportunities for students to display their learnt skills via application in real-time projects. The panel was also apprised of the various student built projects such SwachhBot, Agribot etc. which had ensured that the Kidobotikz student community was always kept abreast of the latest innovations in the field of robotics.
This conference was held to host panel discussions that aimed at highlighting the importance of digital strategies and the support structure available for startups from the Tamil Nadu government. The conference also laid emphasis on policies favourable to strengthening of the ICT industry. The two-day conference presented the “CII Connect 2016 Entrepreneurs Awards” to entrepreneurs across the domain of Information Communication Technology who have made major contributions to the industry.
