If students, in their early age, learn to make their own solar devices and use them, not only they will likely to be future users of the solar energy but they will also be promoting its usage in their own generations and become Student Solar Ambassadors. Keeping this in mind, as a part of IIT Bombay’s Diamond Jubilee Celebration- Student Solar Ambassadors Workshop is being organized on the 150th Birth Anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, 2nd October 2018.

In this unique one-day training program 5,000 students from 100 schools will come together at IIT Bombay campus and learn to assemble their own solar study lamps designed to help them to fulfil their study light needs. In addition to these 5000 students, more than 1 lakh students across the country will take part in similar events. In every state of India at least a few schools will take part in the event. IIT Bombay will train master trainers who will then provide training to 1 lakh students.
