Aditya Sharma | Class 11 | Odisha

Hi I am Aditya, a 16 years old from Jharsuguda, Odisha. My experience at Young Tinker Academy was so amazing and innovative. I have learned so many things that I have never done at my home or in school like CAD designing, assembling 3D Printer and creating models on it , soldering, drilling, learning Arduino, making of different types of bots with Arduino UNO by using different sensors. I also helped other students with their projects and engaged them in a collaborative activities. I have gained a lot of confidence after the fellowship program and have improved my communication skills.
