Shrobona has exhibited her passion by running the Science Festivals, Electronics and Robotics Club to help children to “think like a scientist and engineer” and preparing them to demonstrate, mentor, present on TV, write reports, create repositories, conduct workshops, participate in competitions and volunteering. These initiatives will make the children productive global members of the society and leaders in the coming generations.
