AIM-SIRIUS Deep Technology Learning, Innovation

Programme in Sochi, Russia concludes.

Amritsar Mentor-Student Innovator Duo return with best

practices of Research.

Dr. Resham Sharma (PGT Biology & ATL in Charge) & Mr. Rachit Aggarwal (Class XI- Science student) of DAV
Public School, Lawrence Road, Amritsar have successfully completed the second phase of NITI Aayog's Atal
Innovation Mission (AIM) and Russia’s SIRIUS Deep Technology Learning and Innovation Programme 2019 in

Sochi & have returned back with best practices of contemporary innovation and entrepreneurship (Diploma-
Certification).

Dr. Resham co-supervised two research projects encompassing bio-antioxidant accumulation in cold-stressed
micro-algal species & isolation of therapeutic proteins from r-DNA transformed E.coli through novel methods with
fellow Russian mentors from Moscow State University & BioCad under the direction ‘Biotechnology & Genetic
Research’. Together the Indo- Russian mentors designed, deliberated and guided a team of 10 gifted learner
students from India & Russia. Similarly, Mr. Rachit with his team mates & Russian mentors under the direction of
‘Drones and Robotics’, created an automated dual robot system, which, while collecting tea leaves using machine
vision algorithms, gets rid of low-quality leaves and shoots, hence improving the quality of the collected tea
products.
It’s noteworthy that Dr. Resham and Mr. Rachit were the only teacher-student duo selected together amongst 5
teachers and 25 students across India in this prestigious eight-day project oriented educational program from 28
November to 8 December 2019. The teams got to showcase their innovations & research to President Putin of The
Russian Federation and earned high praise for working on challenge areas common to both countries.
They were hosted at the Indian Embassy & had a detailed interaction with H.E. Dr. DB Venkatesh Varma, the
Indian Ambassador to Russia at Moscow for the same. The Indian Ambassador appreciated Dr. Resham for her
educational insights & hands-on approach for promoting biology & STEAM & expressed happiness for students
like Rachit who develop practical skills and innovate for the community, which is of immense value over
theoretical knowledge.
After returning to India, the Indian Student-Teacher Delegation interacted and shared their experiences with higher
officials including Vice Chairman, NITI Aayog- Dr Rajiv Kumar, CEO NITI Aayog- Amitabh Kant, MHLC
Member AIM, Dr Vijay Chauthaiwale, Mission Director, AIM- Dr. Ramanan and others.
