CAMBOURNE ELECTRONICS AND ROBOTICS CLUB (CERC) was launched in the Cambourne Science Festival at Hub in May 2017, where parents and children showed their interest and registered their names. STEM ambassadors, Dr. Shrobona Bhattacharya and her husband Dr. Sujit Bhattacharya run the club for children of age group of 8 years to 14 years. The club has started around their kitchen table and are held in two batches on Sundays. CERC has diverse and creative children who are passionate in science and technology. Shrobona and Sujit, the parents of two children who are off to their universities think their motivation for education should not stop with their own children’s career. They are working hard to spark the creative imagination of children using hands-on technology. The mission of the club is to expose young children to challenges and new technologies in the field of electronics and thus to nurture and develop their skill set in this arena. Sujit is an experienced space engineer, designer, educator and problem solver who is passionate about inspiring kids to become creators of technology. Children have started to code BBC micro:bit now using Code Editor and eventually will be using Python. Shrobona is interested in creating more positive and collaborative projects to engage and empower children. Children will be certified as they progress into higher levels with regular demonstration and presentation of projects to a larger audience. We are also working toward the national CREST awards (www.crestawards.org) for the budding scientists of the Robotics club.
