What We Do
We design and host unique workshops to introduce children with special needs to the world of robotics, using the ZeroUI robotics kit, an easy-to-use and intuitive product. We hold sessions at the Google Campus, with each workshop consisting of three 90 minute meetings, which provide the participants with a valuable exposure to building and programming.
About the Instructor
Kaushik Shivakumar is an 11th grader at The Harker School and is very passionate about teaching programming and robotics . He has volunteered at various organizations such as Inclusive World, as a Scratch mentor for children with special needs, and at MathAndCoding, teaching programming across various Bay Area libraries. He wanted to combine his love for competitive robotics and teaching, and he created this organization to empower children with special needs to explore the exciting world of robotics.
ZeroUI is a Bay Area startup company that created Ziro – the first hand-controlled and easy-to-use robotics kit. It consists of interchangeable and independent modules that function as motors and can be attached to anything such as cardboard pieces, which can be arranged to form a two-wheeled rover, dog, an R2-D2 robot, or much more. The possibilities are endless.
