10th August 2022: The young minds are the flag bearers of modern civilization. Their open-mindedness, critical thinking and logic pave the way to brilliant innovations. Today’s students are learning new-age technologies to create and innovate to succeed in the global marketplace.
OMOTEC has been the largest Edtech platform offering exclusive mediums to such young minds to invent new ideas and make the world a better place. Young minds actively impact communities and build real-life solutions using OMOTEC’s new-age resources and tools. This Ed-Tech company has fuelled the passion of the young students from top educational institutions by offering brilliant STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) education learning processes.
One such marvelous example is machine learning and image processing to quantify the presence of microplastics in domestic grey water. Pranav Manoj, OMOTEC Alumni, has designed a prototype to measure the microplastic concentration in domestic and commercial grey water at the microscopic level. The government can use this prototype to govern the amount and microplastic released by various clothes. An estimated 160 trillion liters of water enter the aquatic ecosystems with 8 trillion plastic particles. It threatens the ecological balance and needs to quantify to take necessary measures. Computer Vision and Machine Learning will be used for the detection of microplastic in the images from the camera. It would also include a system for logging and monitoring microplastics in the greywater.
In another example, Aarush Mahajan from Delhi has envisioned the idea of designing an android application, Sewer Guard- the safety for manhole scavengers that can measure the presence of toxic gas and the depth of sewers. The name of this application is Sewer Guard. This Class XI student aims to make the manhole scavenging roles safer. He wants to protect the scavengers from toxic gases and chemical exposure. The prototype uses MQ sensors uses MQ sensors to measure real-time gas levels and notify users before entering the manholes. Sewer Guard will CORRELATE, CALCULATE and COMMUNICATE the gas intensity, depth and time inhaled for the worker to come out before it gets dangerous or fatal quickly.
All these unique ideas come from creative minds with the STEM education offered by OMOTEC learning kits. The real-time and experiential learning courses educate students early on robotics, programming, etc. These two examples suggest that they start thinking differently early and navigate new ideas.
Wanting to continue promoting and inspiring change amongst young people, making them future-ready, OMOTEC continues to impart knowledge with experiential learning leading to better development of conceptual foundations among young minds.
