Narmada Valley Avishkar Labs
To create an entire ecosystem around rural India and technology and incubate tech-powered labs across the most underserved regions
About the Program:
Working with Government middle schools in the Mandla region to take them from tinkering to wireless robotics leading to excellence in Automation and Mechatronics to come up with innovation and solutions to problems in the society, exposing them to the best that Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths has to offer. This is based on our experience working with children in our school as well as the naturally talented hands-on approach of rural children.
