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 21st century learning skills in the students, it has been our earnest endeavours to go beyond
the learning horizon of books and enter the world of experiential learning and give a first-hand
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, the 6th edition of the concalve, SAITED 2022 will be conducted on Wednesday, December 7, 2022 in an offline format, after two long years of the pandemic. The event hosts over 7,5000 students from 40+ schools across the state. 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 from across the globe like TED Speaker, Scientist, Presenter, Author Prof. Lewis Dartnell in 2016, Famous Space Scientist and NASA Astronaut, Dr. Jack D. Fischer in the year 2017; Eminent Scientist, Prof Aliasgar Q Contractor as well as Angel Investor Dr. Srikanth Sundararajan in the year 2018, Shri Sandip Das, Former Head - Reliance Jio in the year 2019 and Dr. Prashant Mohapatra, Vice Chancellor, University of California, Davis in the year 2021.

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 within & beyond the state to SAITED 2022 for a great learning experience & transcend more dimensions in this 6th edition of SAITED.
