If you have a passion for tech, you must check out 12-year-old Aarav Garg's YouTube channel
When Aarav Garg was in class VI, he started developing simple apps and basic games like roll the dice, tell your fortune and more
A 12-year-old delivered a session at Chaitanya Bharathi Institute of Technology in Hyderabad for 150 BTech students after he won the Robovanza competition. The same boy also has a YouTube channel, Tech Nuttiez, which has three videos as of now — one on how to make an obstacle-avoiding robot, how to make a line follower robot and a line follower robot with programming — which he started in March last year. Surprisingly, or maybe not, even his comments sections is crowded with questions from BTech students who ask doubts about coding and more. This boy genius is Aarav Garg, a class VIII student of Sister Nivedita School, whose passion for technology is legendary.

So much so that when he was in class VI, he started developing simple apps and basic games like roll the dice, tell your fortune and more. “I have coded in C, C++, Java, HTML, Q Basic, Python...,” he goes on. Needless to say that he learned it all from the internet. “I understood the parts and equipment I need and ordered them online,” says Aarav who was born in Muzaffarnagar and is now in Hyderabad. As if all this was not enough Aarav, who considers Mark Zuckerberg as his role model, is also working on a social media website but remains mum despite our probing.

Aarav’s father, Pankaj Kumar Garg tells us that Aarav has always been a curious child. “He doesn’t give up until I give him the answer to his question,” he laughs. And just because he is a tech buff, doesn’t mean his grades have dipped. He has won several proficiency awards at school and has scored very well in international olympiads too. All we want to say is, we are not surprised.
- Robotics is not hard, though it seems so. If you try, you can do it
- Everything is available on the internet, so make use of that
- Interest drives everything
