Members of the IEEE Student Club of BRHS traveled to India to implement a Digital Literacy Project in the village of Paushi, West Bengal. The students worked with IEEE and  Kreeya,an NGO. The students wrote a proposal for funding this Digital Literacy Project. Members of the iSTEM Club researched the materials needed for the project and submitted this $1500 budget proposal to IEEE-EPICS. The proposal was accepted and representatives of the club traveled to Paushi village to set up the Digital Literacy Project.

A blog, with daily summaries and pictures of the implementation gives in-depth details of the Project deployment.
