Motilal Nehru Public School, Jamshedpur
Innovation is the ability to view change as an opportunity rather than a danger. Arnav Sinha, a class 10 student at Motilal Nehru Public School, identifies himself as an innovator. His innovation? A sensor-based sanitiser dispenser to help prevent the spread of Covid-19. The dispenser is touch-free, so as to prevent the spread of the virus, and it also has a built-in timer, to ensure that the person using the sanitiser does so properly and for the required amount of time. Wanting to take his invention out of his ‘workshop’ and to the masses, Arnav also planned everything, including his finances, to ensure the sensor-based sanitiser machine worked effectively. Arnav won first place in the state-level IRC School League Robotics Competition in 2018 and went on to participate in the Nationals in Delhi. Has also won various other accolades including a sponsored field trip to ISRO Ahmedabad, district-level INSPIRE Awards, 'Innovate for Change-2022' Inter-School Competition organised by his school, among others. Arnav is determined that he would apply his love of creativity to ideas and activities that develop the nation. As soon as Arnav finishes his boards, he intends to work on his unique, creative ideas. Some of his proposed future projects include a wireless phone charger and an automatic data-gathering system for his father's company, among other things.
