So, I decided to take a private class of robotics on a rooftop and I was amazed to see 20 students attending the class. This is how I got the idea of starting Asier solutions and quit my teaching job. We conduct workshops, monthly courses and workshops in the schools and colleges within the age group of 7-21 years,” said Sunaya about her startup.

The need of the hour is to develop creative thinking and logical reasoning in the kids. And, our kits are specially designed to inculcate the same in them,” Sunaya added.
