Students received training in mobile app development (torch app, QR code scanner) and electronic voting machines using Raspberry Pi board. They were also taught Python programming for creating coding for electronic voting machines and IoT device models.

The students made sensor-driven alarms, electronic voting machines, 3D animation of solar system, and 3D models of home equipment during the camp. The participants will get an opportunity to attend the State-level training programme soon, according to an official release issued here.
