The Need for Electronics

If there’s one thing that the first 15 years of the 21st century will go down in history for, then it has to be for their astounding number of contributions to the world of technology. Technological advancement has become a part of our everyday lives, so much so that engineering has become the de facto choice of course for a vast majority of Indian youth. In congruity with the rapid elevation of the kind of electronics we deal with on a regular basis, it’s only natural for the youth to be interested in the myriad fields of engineering.

However what’s more astonishing is the dissonance between the number of children who have studied engineering and children who are well-versed with its applicability.

India’s Electronics Import Bill has crossed US $300 Bn. It is estimated to surpass the Oil Import Bill and reach US $400 Bn by 2019. According to National Employability Report 2017, 80% of engineering graduates are unemployable and need experiential training.

Apart from poor economy & inflation, the repercussions of this also include stunted industry growth because of lack of problem solvers – people who have no hands-on experience of dealing with the problems of the society.

Needless to say, because the industry in India is stagnant, creation of new jobs for the uncountable number of students graduating every year with a seemingly unusable degree in engineering is a pipe dream.

Various programs have been launched (both publicly and privately) to actively deal with the dissonance including the ‘Make in India’ initiative by PM Narendra Modi and Niti Aayog’s Atal Innovation Mission – AIM.

This is exactly where Cirkitree’s vision takes its roots – to bridge the gap between theory and application by making it comprehensible yet exciting at a very early stage in a student’s journey towards new innovations and discoveries.

After an interaction with teachers in over 20 schools in Delhi NCR, we concluded that there were three major obstacles that needed to be overcome in order to make the dream of a ‘more aware India’ a reality:

a) Innovative Project Ideas suitable for everyone

b) Long lead time and high costs

c) Challenges in sourcing of components – Quality/ Specification Issues

A Do It Yourself kit is the perfect solution to all of these problems. A DIY kit contains all the required components to complete a project and is supported by a photo rich, step by step manual to guide the young learner in the building process. This style of learning helps a student develop the right attitude towards solving the problems in the society.
