Shiva Manickam, a grade IX student may be only 14 years old but he works with finesse when it comes to Robots and mechanical marvels.This young Robo designer has a volatile mind every time he juggles between Lego, Arduino and other processors. He has been representing the School for the last 3 years at the World Robot Olympiad (WRO).

Each year Shiva Manickam and his Robot have excelled for the ‘ Innovative design offering Creative solution to meet the needs of Science and  Technology’.

This year his exhibit, Infinity – M, a rover promises to make a ‘detailed’ research of the samples of anything that is solid , liquid and gaseous on Planet Mars. The Rover complete with methane, light , rain and ground sensors will focus on the new element found on the Red Planet.

Shiva Manickam and 2 of his counter parts from city schools competed against 63 nations for the coveted International Level Award in Sochi, Russia between November 21 and November 23.
