Project Saathi - 6 Open positions for Internship/Thesis

Level: Entry

Impacters is growing and we are putting together a team of strong, enthusiastic engineers and scientists! 

Impacters aims to start a movement that encourages youths, especially girls to innovate in the field of STEM by giving them the tools to get started and aspiring them to continue exploring. It also aspires to create an inviting place for future female tech leaders by giving them the tools and support to invent and innovate in an unrestricted environment. After organizing numerous workshops and internship sessions, Impacters is now working on a 10 month project (possibility for extension) that will simplify agriculture through scientific methods and we are looking for interns/thesis students to support us in the further development of our solutions.
