My name is Syed Ali Bilal (12 years). I am the chief technical officer. My job is to make sure all the equipment and machines are working – in short, I make sure nothing explodes during the class.
In the past eight months, we have come a long way from being recognized by such leading forums as Pakistan Business Forum, Baithak School Network, UK Aid, Ilm Ideas 2, EdTech Cohort, Pakistan Association of Software Houses Group (PASHA), and Destination Imagination. We have an alumni of hundred plus students and have been featured by national and international news channels, such as BBC, Hum News and Samaa TV.
We have incubated at the Nest I/O, which is a Google Back Tech Incubator as part of their Ed Tech Cohort. It was an amazing experience! We received great mentorship and help for growing our personality and startup.
What is the inspiration behind your interest in building machines?

Though these machines, can do so much more than by our hands, although they were first made by hands. Making also gives new life to old and beloved objects.
