Robocon has given us a good platform . Students will have an opportunity to go to any sector of choice, and while doing so knowledge of  robotics will have additional weightage . With creative minds and ideas and with proper techniques hitting the target is a wonderful way of learning. As youngster of India who are the makers of India.
