We strongly believe business activities have a wide impact on the society in which we operate. We believe in bringing the social change through empowering the most vulnerable members of underprivileged communities. As part of our Corporate Social Responsibility, supported by our own charitable foundation, we have been conducting summer camps for underprivileged children with an aim to make them job-ready by introducing them on the future trends in Electronics, Electrical and Information Technology.
We, at Triad, want to ensure that the lesser privileged children get the exposure as those in the higher strata of society so that they can also be equally competitive when they face the corporate world in future. Towards the end of the two weeks’ course, students were given a participation certificate.
We conducted a Robotics Summer Camp at our facility from April 30 - May 11, 2018. Although the camp was open to everyone, including children of employees, the focus was to expose kids of grades 7-11 being supported by our charitable foundation, to Robotics, who otherwise do not have such exposure as part of their curriculum. We had a total of 6 kids enrolled for the camp.
The camp was designed and conducted entirely by employee volunteers. Kids were exposed to fundamental concepts of physics, electrical, mechatronics and CAD in a fun environment. They used CAD tools to generate ideas and create designs. By the end of the camp, the kids, with the help of their mentors, created working models of 4-5 different types of robots. They also had the opportunity to demo their robots in an expo-like setting and field questions from attendees. Certificates of achievement were distributed to all the kids for successful completion of the camp.
