The Search for the Next Robotics Legend is on!!!


The Next Robotics Legend is an initiative designed by Edu360, Union Bank’s education

platform, in collaboration with Awarri, a pan-African technology company, to infuse 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 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 the 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 learnt 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.
Entries will be received from August 7th to 21st, 2020. Visit www.edu360.ng for more
information.
