Two A-level students, Anshul Fussey and Siddhant Mundra, walked into my office a couple of months ago with a proposal to conduct a 3D printing workshop for their juniors and peers.

Their idea was to conduct a 3D printing workshop for students of Grades 8 and 9 over five Sundays for only Rs. 2,000. Their programmes included training on TinkerCad and activities on design, creativity and problem solving, and finally design a takeaway 3D printed logo/product.  They pitched their idea to parents on school open house days and registered interest from 40 participants.

Their proposal included a complimentary 3D printer for the school, a training manual so the programme could be continued in the future by school teachers, and a promise to assemble another 3 to 4 3D printers for the school after their March 2023 board exams. They also volunteered to contribute 10 percent of their earning to an NGO founded by another Rustomjee alumnus Sagun Bhatjiwalle’s Nature’s Ally Foundation, which works with strays. They made a 60 percent profit that they split between themselves, and also incentivised their friends, Neil Pereira and Veer Kabra, who supported them in running the program over 5 days.

These are the everyday stories at Rustomjee Cambridge that inspire me and my team of principals and teachers, and keeps us on our toes.  Anshul and Siddhant lived up to the school motto, Dare to Dream…Dare to excel. They have not only created memories for themselves, but their efforts will inspire other students to push the boundaries of innovation and enterprise, leaving an indelible mark on the Rustomjee Cambridge legacy.
