“The kids learnt about Programming, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Robotics and Life Skills to enhance their creativity, communication and collaboration skills.
“In just five days, participants programmed calculators using Python. They also programmed drones, 2D games with the Unity Game Engine, and built their first robotic cars and at the end of the traininf, the Bournvita kids received a certificate of participation,” Cadbury noted.
