Indian boy spurs school education

Mobile science initiative started by a teenager has so far helped 15,000 students in the northern Haryana state.

    India has seen a technological revolution, fuelled by growing numbers of scientists and researchers graduating from universities.

    Despite that, many children still do not get the chance to fulfill their potential with limited government support and financial constraints of families.

    But a new club founded by 15-year-old Lakshya Kaura is trying to change that, helping at least 15,000 children in 120 schools through a mobile science initiative.
