Want to relive your childhood? I often rue the fact that my own school education was not as much fun based learning as I would have liked. I was mugging the properties of soil in South America without ever knowing what type of soil we had in our hometown. Science, easily the most exciting subject, was taught in a manner no different than History.
If the statement above strikes a chord with you, if you strongly feel that our current education system requires a tinge of practical, do-it-yourself, fun based learning to nurture the scientific temperament among tomorrow’s generation, if you believe education is more about how you learn than what you learn – this internship is your chance to make a difference! An internship with the best all round learning that one can imagine.
The applications are now closed for this internship. Thanks everyone for their interest and wish you all the best!
