This year IEEE BRACU SB & IEEE RAS BRACU SBC had organized a three-day long workshop over the basics of development board and ROS over the mid July. The purpose of the training program was to skill the tech enthusiast pupils in their interested field of innovation, focused on the development of projects based on Arduino and ROS. The workshop was held on 15th, 17th and 19th July and was initiated by three of the most capable members of IEEE RAS; Mr. Razin Bin Issa, the former team leader of the BRACU Mongol Tori Project, Mr. Firoz Wadud, the current team lead of BRACU Mongol Tori and Mr. Hashib Ishalm, the team lead of Network and Communication of the Mongol Tori team. Together they tried to give the participants the hand-to-hand experience of using Arduino boards and as well as programming them through virtual open-source simulation software, Tinkercad and finally making them way capable to deal with those hardwired and create their own projects. Also, the participants were enlightened with the differences between different programming languages like Java, Python, C+, C++ etc. On the last day of the workshop, there was a segment related to Robot Operating System (ROS), a very new concept for Bangladesh but widely used worldwide. ROS is a flexible framework for writing robot software which is a collection of tools, libraries and conventions that aim to simplify the task of creating complex and robust robot behavior across a wide variety of robot platforms. All the participants were honored with certificates and IEEE BRACU SB considers this event as an achievement as it satisfied the curious minds.
