RGT TEAM - ABDELAZIZ MOHAMED
Updated: Aug 5
How it all started:
Meet Abdelaziz Mohamed, one of our valuable volunteer and the head of the course development team at Robots Got Talents (RGT), is a passionate individual born in Khartoum, Sudan. His journey into robotics, mechanics, and tinkering began at a young age when his curiosity drove him to assist his father in fixing his car, sparking a lifelong fascination with understanding the intricacies of mechanics. As Abdelaziz grew older, his curiosity only grew stronger, leading him to dismantle toys, experiment with their components, and repurpose them to create new inventions. One pivotal moment came when his uncle, a robotics lecturer, gifted him an Arduino board, a programmable microcontroller board, with a simple yet profound statement: "Now you can build and control your own car or anything you want." Intrigued by the possibilities, Abdelaziz embarked on a journey to unravel the mysteries of the Arduino. With guidance from his uncle and the vast resources available on the internet, he learned to harness the power of the Arduino hardware and software, master the art of soldering electrical components, and construct complex electronic circuits.
Arduino Adventures and Collaborations:
Abdelaziz's first significant project with the Arduino was the creation of a Bluetooth-controlled automobile. This accomplishment not only fuelled his passion but also served as a steppingstone to more ambitious endeavours. He pushed his boundaries further and built a semi-automated potato cannon, showcasing his ability to merge mechanical engineering principles with the world of electronics. As his skills grew, so did his desire to share his knowledge and experiences with others.
A Meeting of Minds:
During his college years in Egypt, Abdelaziz's passion for robotics, Lego, and STEM-related subjects led him to cross paths with Youssef Osman, a robotics instructor at that time and the founder of Robots Got Talents (RGT) & RoboApp. Together, they embarked on several exciting projects, nurturing their friendship and collaborative spirit. Recognizing Abdelaziz's talent and dedication, Youssef proposed that he volunteer at RGT. Embracing the opportunity, Abdelaziz began his journey with RGT, eager to make a meaningful impact in the field of STEM education. After his training period, and taking a part in the development of various courses, his first full project involved developing a course on BrickLink Studio software, a digital platform that enables users to construct models using virtual LEGO bricks. Guiding enthusiasts through the software, Abdelaziz aimed to inspire creativity and encourage individuals to explore the possibilities of digital LEGO design [Stud.io Designer course].
Contributing to STEM Education with RGT:
Abdelaziz's most recent project with RGT was creating an Arduino course designed to teach young learners the fundamentals of utilizing Arduino hardware and software.
Through engaging lessons and hands-on projects, he aimed to ignite a spark of curiosity and equip future innovators with the necessary skills to bring their ideas to life. [Arduino Discovery core classroom course]
Working with RGT has been a transformative experience for Abdelaziz. It has provided him with invaluable knowledge, exposure to diverse perspectives, and the opportunity to connect with fellow enthusiasts in the STEM community. Inspired by his experiences, he looks forward to continuing his work at RGT, contributing to the development of more STEM material and empowering the next generation of innovators.
Abdelaziz' journey from a curious Lego enthusiast to a course developer at RGT showcases the power of passion and determination. Through his work, he aims to inspire the next generation of innovators, guiding them to unlock their creative potential in the fascinating world of STEM.
