# What is e-Yantra Lab Set-up Initiative (eLSI) ?
eLSI is an initiative to establish a culture of “Project Based Learning” through an e-Yantra Lab embedded in a college. We do this by training teachers and students through various e-Yantra initiatives in technology skills and in using these skills to solve real problems using technology.
We have established robotics labs in 425+ colleges across India & Bhutan. We train a team of teachers and students from a college in Embedded Systems theory, Microcontroller programming, Software Foundation, Innovation & Entrepreneurship, etc. The teachers and students are trained to implement experiments through online MOOCs over a period of 2-3 months. At the end of the training, the participants are able to build embedded systems applications to solve practical problems.
We complement the existing higher education system by bringing a project based component into engineering education - i.e. “learn by doing” by training students in practical skills through competitions that last 2-6 months. These are e-Yantra Robotics Competition (eYRC) that trains in skills, e-Yantra Innovation Challenge (eYIC) that trains in the use of these skills to solve real problems and other initiatives such as Hackathons and Sprints that test their newly acquired skills.
