We aim to empower the Grade 8 - 12 students of GSF India Schools to become future innovators and entrepreneurs, contributing to the Make in India campaign.
Let us look at the set of guidelines for participating in MI4:
Students are encouraged to choose projects on themes that focus on Manufacturing, Technology, Renewable Energy, Agriculture, Healthcare, Education, and Space Technology.
Students can form teams of 4 - 8 members to collaborate on the project. We encourage diversity in team composition, including students from different grades/age groups and skill sets.
Teams can seek mentorship or guidance from teachers, professionals, or experts in relevant fields to provide assistance and advice during the project development.
Each team must submit a detailed project proposal outlining the problem statement, proposed solution, methodology, and expected outcomes.
Students are encouraged to think out of the box and come up with innovative solutions to everyday problems.
Teams should conduct thorough research and analysis related to their projects. They should explore existing solutions, market feasibility, and potential impact.
Each team must maintain detailed documentation of their project development process, including challenges faced and lessons learned.
