Welcome to the wonderful world of robotics, electronics and programming.
My name is Michael. I have a regular job to pay my own child's school fees, but I also
run the RobotScience educational project at University of Johannesburg Technolab
to help young South Africans acquire hi-tech skills.
I lived for a time in the USA where I worked for a software company, I returned to South
Africa to get involved in educational software development.
On Saturday mornings I teach economically disadvantaged teenagers how to build and program
robots at University of Johannesburg (UJ) TechnoLab.
This is my small way of giving back to society.
It is my hope that this small project can grow, so that in time we will be able to train every person
that wants to acquire these skills.
We recently received a grant from the Shuttleworth Foundation, which will enable us to train a group of
economically disadvantaged South Africans that would not have been able to get these skills otherwise.
UJ TechnoLab is currently selecting which candidates will make up the first group, I am delighted that
I'm going to be able to train them.
Please click on the link below to enter this website, we have more than 200 free videos that have been viewed
more than 100,000 times that you can watch.
If you are a corporate and would like to help us to train more South African teenagers, please do not hesitate
to contact me.
