On the projects front, the onus really lies on the students about the technologies in which they wish to get involved. There are a multitude of projects for students of different technical backgrounds. I developed the prototypes for air ionizer and temperature controlled fan. The prototype development phase especially was a steep learning curve for me and helped me a lot in preparing for my future professional life.

I worked on a knock down model of a household stove. I was also involved in experiments to test the efficiency of other industrial grade cooking stoves which were being developed at that point of time. My contribution on this project was the first step towards designing a metal stove product for a group of women entrepreneurs. The internship helped me a lot in improving my understanding of the subject of social entrepreneurship and gaining ability to work in a team
