The impact of the practice has been noticeable. It has been created a bond between institute, community and other resources. The students are experiencing this elevated skill levels in communication, presentation, collaboration and articulation.

These practices in combination have not only motivated the students who directly participated in the programme but also encouraged others to participate in the same.
