Project Saathi - Junior Data Scientist
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.
About the project
In this exciting project, you will work on diverse issues related to the topic of data-driven farming. The goal: scientific assessment of agricultural methods and to make smart farming more accessible to the smallholder farmers.
As an intern, you will be involved in various tasks ranging from collecting data to analyzing data, creating correlations and identifying characteristics for agriculture related data.
In addition, you will help your team interpret the results and create data-related reports to present them.
You will be active on our online communities by contributing content to our online media channels.
