Union Bank has announced the search for The Next Robotics Legend which is an initiative designed by the Bank’s education platform, Edu360 in collaboration with Awarri, a pan African technology company.

The search by Union Bank and Awarri is aimed at infusing Robotics and Artificial Intelligence (AI) into the education of the Nigerian child.

This stems from the realisation that the solutions to some of our most complicated problems as a nation lie in the education of our children today.

This first-of-its-kind robotics training and competition for students aged 11 to 16 will focus on identifying and nurturing young potential inventors and creators who will receive the necessary training to solve some of the challenges facing the Nigerian society with the aid of robotics and AI.

To enter, take a 30-second video of your child telling us what they like about robots. Upload on www.edu360.ng and fill the accompanying consent form. 25 of the most creative and passionate entries will be selected to participate in robotics training.

At the end of the free training programme, participants will be required to identify a need in their community, and apply the skills learned to proffer a solution.

The student with the best solution will be admitted for a mentorship program with Awarri, the advanced AI and robotics company owned by Silas Adekunle – top international robotics engineer renowned for creating the world’s first intelligent gaming robot.

Schools are not left out! To ensure the sustenance of the initiative, Edu360 will partner with four secondary schools by providing robotics toolkits and training for their teachers to enable them include robotics in their curriculum.
