Conducted a Science Fair in a Remote Village

I conducted a Science Fair inspired by Intel ISEF at Andavar School, Porayar, India to motivate students in STEM. This was to help them identify problems in their community and solve them. The students chose a topic/issue of their choice relating to their village and conducted research experiments and analysis for 10 weeks. I was able to help them through frequent discussions via Skype. Prizes were provided to participating the students, with Grand Awards to the best projects in the field of Language, Plant Science, Behavioral Science, and Human Body Functioning. Scientists and entrepreneurs were invited from different places in India as judges to give insight on research leading to entrepreneurship.
