Robomaniacs', had seven participants in the age group of 9-14. Karan Buntval, a 5th standard student of Inventure Academy, felt the tournament was an exciting opportunity to learn and have fun at the same time. "We were under no pressure and we had a lot of fun and it was exciting to work in a team and coordinate on different aspects of the project", he said.

Karan says that ‘Robomaniacs' used an ultrasonic, light and touch sensor, and 3 motors to build the robot. The sensors and the motors were all fixed in their position, but one motor was left to change the attachments for the different tasks. "Our robot was stable but slow, we are definitely looking forward to the next edition of FLL and we will improve our design", adds Karan.
