The Science for Rural India (SFRI) group originated during the discussions by a few like-minded students in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, IISc Bangalore, way back in 2016, who felt the need to do something about science education in rural India. The quality of education in most parts of rural India is dismal. Being students of one of the pioneering institutes of higher education in the country, we believe that a part of the responsibility lies on our shoulders, and we should address this problem directly or indirectly. Slowly, over time, the idea of SFRI extended to the student community in other departments, and many students with similar visions joined the group. Currently, the group has around 30 active members, including students, staff, and faculty from various departments on the campus.
