The Khalmax Robotics Project is an initiative that seeks to empower children,(especially in Africa) to be problem solvers and be innovative thinkers through science and technology. The purpose of our initiative is to train children as young as seven (7) years and older in robotics and electronic engineering. To achieve this, we partner with schools and other educational institutions to provide an adequate platform to reach out to students through the establishment of the Khalmax Robotics Club (K.R.C).
We establish robotic clubs in schools as a extracurricular activity, which usually meet students atleast once a week. Through this programme children with little or no skills in robotics are taught and trained to build, assemble and program robots almost from scratch! The entire six(6) months course is divided into modules which comprises of electronics, computer programming and robotics engineering.
K.R.C employs innovative hands-on projects to get your child’s creative ideas flowing. Your ward will learn to build and program robots with Basic Stamp and arduino technology — all while making friends, developing new skills and having a great time with STEM. For many kids, robotics class is a climax of their weekly activities.
After completing the six (6) month robotics course students embark on a final project and are made to build selected engineering project. This is usually the climax of the programme. Students are grouped into teams of engineers, programmers and designers. Through our training and mentorship, We select a number of projects for your child to build. Examples of such projects are: Voice controlled robot car, robot arms, alarm detectors, color sorting machines etc. Upon completion these robots are used in an external competition, where the students, as well as schools would compete on higher platforms both on the national and international front. Winners of such competitions obtain scholarships, cash prizes and sponshorships from international organisations.
The K.R.C meets atleast once a week. Schools which have K.R.C established usually have their robotics training after school hours. This training session takes two(2) hours. However we have have made provision on saturday mornings for students who do not have the K.R.C established in their school but would still like to join the robotics club. We urge new comers to kindly contact our office lines for registration to enrol their wards.
Are you a School head, and do u wish to establish the K.R.C chapter in your school? Kindly give us a call!
Kindly view the times and venues for our training centres

It is surprising to know how my seven year old daughter could make connections on what she calls a breadboard. She keeps telling me about resistors, transistors and LEDs and how they are used in electronic components. I just hope she doesn't destroy my TV set at the rate she is going. Kudos to your team!Mary
