As IMC, we wrote two books called; “Alican’s
Robotics Journey” and “Ela’s Robotics Journey”. In
“Alican’s Robotics Journey”, our hero Alican is a little
boy who has interest in robotics and technology. The
theme is that Alican wants to form a robotics club in
his school. With the help of his friends and family he
forms the team.
After the “Alican’s Robotics Journey”, we wanted
to put more emphasis on gender equation, hence we
retold the story as “Ela’s Robotics Journey”. In this
version, Ela wants to form a robotics club; but since
she is a girl, people do not let her run for her dreams.
Her family wants Ela to be a doctor, not an engineer. All due this pressure, she
competes in the league and becomes successful.
As IMC we inspired many children. We
printed the books, and distributed amongst the
refugee camps at the Hatay-Syria border. To
make sure that we can reach as many people as
we can, we translated our book to English,
Spanish and Arabic too. Also since as a team we
care about equality without any limits, for people
with sight disabilities; we recorded our book into
an audible. As IMC, we see people’s problems
and focus on solving them everyday, and we will
not give up.
