Masterclass Space was established in 2017 by Aditya Raghuwanshi, who holds Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering and Masters in Physics from BITS-Pilani.  Aditya was one of the top scorers in Physics in IIT-JEE 2007 at All India Level which finally inclined him to pursue Physics. Having a passion for teaching, Aditya declined offer from McKinsey & Company - a Management Consulting Company after college and instead worked with Eklavya Foundation, a Bhopal based NGO to understand the education scenario in India. He also took experience in engineering sector working as design engineer in Oil & Gas firm in India & Texas, USA but finally returned to follow his passion in academics. A tech enthusiast since college, Aditya was the first to represent India in the World’s Biggest Robotics Competition Robocup-2011, held at Istanbul, Turkey and won the Intel India Embedded Challenge 2011 for his technical contribution. At the age of 21, Aditya became speaker of prestigious TEDx Talks and later represented India at 'The Future of Science & Education' conference held at the scientific centre of Russia, Novosibirsk, Siberia as a part of World Festival of Youth and Students 2017 on behalf of BRICS Forum. Along with graduates from IIT Ropar, IIT Delhi and IIM Kozhikode Aditya founded Masterclass Space with an objective to offer high quality education to students living in metro cities who lose time in traffic and travel long distances as well as for students from smaller cities and towns, who do not have quality coaching academies in their hometowns and cannot afford the high cost of living and expensive education in big cities.
