SAI International

To better prepare the students in Science and Technology, SAI International has become a
pioneer for its sincere contribution towards igniting the scientific temperament. An effective
learning is all about a combination of classroom learning along with self discovery. To inculcate
the 21 st century learning skills in the students it has been our earnest endeavors to go beyond
the learning horizon of books and enter the world of experiential learning and give a firsthand
experience to the students and introduce them to the universe of knowledge.

This year the highly awaited India’s largest innovative school-based science and technology
festival with over multi-school participation across the world, SAITED 2021 will be conducted
virtually, owing to the ongoing pandemic as e-SAITED. The event hosts over 5,000 students
from 40+ schools across the globe. It aims to promote STEM and orient, educate, and
prepare school students towards becoming future innovators, researchers, consultants, and
designers in their preferred field.

SAITED provides students with an excellent opportunity to interact with luminaries from the field
of research, engineering, medicine, health, and technology from across the globe. Students get
to enrich themselves listening to eminent personalities on topics of great relevance, which
encourage and empower them to take up innovative scientific activities and think outside the
box. The event was honoured by the presence of eminent personalities such as NASA
Astronaut and Famous Space Scientist, Dr. Jack D. Fischer (2017); Astro-Biologist Research
Scientist, Presenter, and Author Prof. Lewis Dartnell (2016); Eminent Scientist, Prof Aliasgar Q
Contractor (2018); and Former CTO of HCL and Cognizant, Venture Capitalist, Dr. Srikanth
Sundararajan (2018).

It also gives me immense pleasure to let you know that this huge event is driven by students of
the Science stream of Classes XI and XII. It is a great learning platform for students
participating from other schools. The event will surely provide an extensive knowledge on the
emerging technologies and innovations across various fields, believed to be very interactive too.
Students get a chance to present their ideas and research works based on the themes shared
and they obtain valuable advice to strengthen their work.

I heartily welcome all the students and teachers from various schools and colleges of India and
abroad to this virtual SAITED 2021 for a great learning experience.
