Ugyen Academy (UA) - STEM Olympiad-2019 Tango Gem Bot
Ugyen Academy visions itself as a school of WILL - WINNERS, INNOVATORS, LEARNERS, LEADERS. Accordingly, Tango Gem Bot is an innovation of team UA. The concept and the purpose of our robot, “Tango Gem Bot", for artificial intelligence (AI) in sustainable farming, is a prototype that will cater to small, medium and large sized farms – meeting the demands of the diverse nature of our terrain. In particular, it will lead not just to food sufficiency in the country but solve the unemployment problem to a large degree.
The Tango Gem Bot has multiple functions like loading and unloading of cube boxes which represent farm machineries in reality. Second function is to lift the TT balls and that resembles the watering system. Lastly, we have picking of T shape cards resembling the seeds for the farms.
The Tango Gem Bot in real life will also make farming less painstaking and more enjoyable. The use of AI in sustainable farming in turn will boost the economy and materialize the most important dream - food sufficiency.
We remain greatly indebted to REC for coming up with such a meaningful initiative in collaboration with FABlab Bhutan. Such initiatives will give our youths an opportunity to showcase what they have learned in the classroom.
Finally, we would like to thank our school for the relentless support to Team UA in STEM Olympiad 2019. We understand that the competition is very fierce but we will promise to live up to our motto, “Be Your Best”.
