Youth are the base to the foundation of ‘Bharat’ and can contribute immensely to the development process of the Nation besides, the teachers also play an important role in channelizing and giving the right direction to energetic and skills of the youth. This was stated by Governor Shiv Pratap Shukla after he launched Him Drone and Shayata e-commerce app at an event organized today at St. Thomas School, Shimla.
He lauded the efforts of Shayan Abdul Jeeshan, a student of St. Thomas School, who invented Him Drone and said that it was undoubtedly a noteworthy achievement and calls for the praise of Principal Vidhu Priya Chakravarti, teachers, and parents of the student.
The Governor said that due to the globalization of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and digital education, the traditional field of education has seen significant changes.
