My name is Abhinn Kaushik. I am 15 years old and am pursuing my IB diploma studies at Le Bocage International School. I am part of FIRST Global’s official Robotics Team Mauritius.
Since the age of 12, I have been intrigued by the field of robotics. It all started from a small Dr Mady’s electronic set for beginners, from where I was introduced to the concept of electronics. Later, I could implement this knowledge I gained into robotics via the Arduino. I was shocked to see the potential of this microcontroller and how it could be used to induce change in our day-to-day lives.
