Coimbatore: The Manchester of the South India, Coimbatore, is brimming with new opportunities be it education, technology or automobiles. Thanks to the quality of education, young minds in the city are getting opportunities to think differently in every step.
If it was Hustlers Hub, started by a group of engineers, which redefined educational system, there is now Tools and Tactics Lab.

Founder and CEO R Shyam Raj told The Covai Post: “The entire concept revolves around ‘Internet of Things’ basically an advanced module where focus is on robotics and things based upon hands of learning. We focus on school and college students in particular by giving them hands-on-learning experience using basic kits like STEM (Science Technology, Hearing and Mathematics) and Arduyno.”
Through this, T&T Labs provide year-long curriculum because schools today teach only academics and concepts based on Internet, which was the whole idea behind the birth of T&T Labs in December 2017. The organisation started working actively only a month back. The focus is primarily on private schools but during every weekend attention is diverted towards the corporation school as well. Since students are trained using the organisation’s own kit there is a nominal fee for each module of 12 weeks, he said.
There are 23 modules in all. Trainers selected for teaching the students are professionals which include interns of Intel and young engineering graduates. They are divided between classes 3 and 8. Currently located in KGISL, the centre is looking to spread its wings by collaborating with nearby corporates like Intel in the coming days.
“The company has already conducted two training workshops which had a total 235 students from two colleges and come June it will be done for school students.”
