    community of teens to create a platform for youths to come forth to contribute to society.

    He has organized a 3-month-long program on Arduino, IoT, and robotics in different schools in

    Pokhara. Also, he is involved as a mentor at Karkhana and volunteering to introduce STEAM-

    based education to foster communication, collaboration, critical thinking and cooperation

    Management etc .

    He is also working to build Nepali modules according to the curriculum of Nepal which will

    provide a solution for e-library with enough contents to help students study and communities

    solve basic problems under Rs. 8000. The device can be deployed anywhere and requires no

    internet to function and is low powered enough to be powered with a solar-charged power

    bank. It can be accessed by up to 20+ devices at once through wifi or LAN cable or it itself can

    be used to browse stored content by adding a mouse and display to the materials.
