Indian Science & Technology Campaign
The lack of experiential learning in his school curriculum led Delhi-based Aniket to start his initiative called the Indian Science and Technology Campaign (ISTC) at the age of 17 to promote experiential learning and skill development in STEM subjects. With 12 team members, as of Jan 2021 when he was elected to the Ashoka Young Changemaker program, their initiative had already reached 20 different schools benefiting over 20,000 students and 200 teachers. The team now works closely with the State Government in Delhi to ensure all children have the wherewithal to develop core competencies in STEM fields. Outside of his science education initiative, Aniket is also actively working on building an entrepreneurial mindset in young people. He co-founded the Tale of Humankind (TOH), a storytelling initiative that role-models changemakers and encourages young people to lead. Through their social media and digital platforms, the team amplifies inspiring stories and provides practical ideas for their young audience to develop empathy and change-making ability.
