The interesting field of GIS has opened my eyes to the new perspective of how maps, spatial data and satellite imagery can be all analyzed together to discover qualities and obtain unique insights to the earth we all live in”, said Punit Subudhi from Class XII interning at SPARC International.

“The impetus of the internship has been incredible. Learning from experienced people in their field has been a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and highly informative. I have enjoyed the internship. So far, we have learned about different kinds of insurance and also discussed many exceptions and unique instances in insurance. We look forward to implementing these lessons in possible professions in the future. I would sincerely thank our school SAI International for giving us this amazing opportunity at such a young age to be a part of an amazing organization like YOVANT. Our coaches and mentors at YOVANT are extremely supportive and are helping us in our journey to becoming proper citizens of our nation”, said Aryan Agarwal of Class X,

“I was given the golden opportunity to partake in the SAI Summer Internship Program. The whole idea of ​​internships has always seemed amazing to me. I chose to spend time at ILS out of the many rewarding companies and institutions. I was assigned to the RNA lab headed by Dr Amaresh Panda. The lab is a wonderful environment to get a great experience about how a research team works. The entire ambience seems very welcoming and insightful. The research team has been kind enough to let me observe few of the minor procedures that take place in the lab daily. I am grateful to the school to have headed up this program and help me make valuable use of my time over the summer break,” said Nikita Patra of Class XII.

“The 2-week internship program offered by SAI International is a unique opportunity for the students to get a hands-on experience in their preferred field of interest.
