National Science Day

On the occasion of National Science Day, Thursday 28th February, 2019, students from Grades 6 to 8 visited the Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre and Priyadarshini Planetarium, Thiruvananthapuram.

The students were awed by the incredible display of rockets such as Rohini as well as the models of satellites and rocket launch vehicles. The video presentation on the various activities of the ISRO as well as the different stages in a rocket launch, was both informative and remarkable.

The students were fascinated by the spectacular show at the dome shaped gallery at the Priyadarshini Planetarium. The dazzling display was indeed breath-taking and enriching. The display also portrayed how communication has evolved over the centuries, from ancient times to the modern era of satellite communication.

The students also tried their hands at various scientific principles at the pro-active Science Park.
