Robotics Association Nepal (RAN) since its establishment on 2010 A.D. has been effectively providing the platform to learn, to explore, to educate and to compete in the field of robotics. It is one of the national level non-profit organizations focused on the enthusiast all over Nepal. In short span of time, RAN with its vision to represent Nepal globally and act as common hub for robotics activities in Nepal, has been successful to leave a good impression among Nepalese people. Along with the conduction of various workshops, seminars, training’s and competitions, this organization has been gradually moving towards research and development. This area of research and development is taken the most prioritized field in its mission since its start up.
Robotics Association Nepal is back with its fourth edition of National Robotics Competition (NRC) called ‘YANTRA 4.0 Art Science and Tech Festival 2015’ on December
3 19, 2015. (Read the update below.) This competition is supposed to be followed up by 9 days exhibition which starts from 6th of December. There will be 15 days of Art and Tech Exhibition from Dec 16 to 30.
