“Astronomy has intrigued me from childhood and I have since remained an Astronomer at heart and at work. I have always looked at the sky and wondered what the cosmos held for mankind. A mere look through a telescope at the vistas of the sky, sparks the mind, makes one curious and excited and opens up a new mental horizon for the person. It makes one realize how small we are in the vastness of the universe and in a positive way connects us to the larger aspect of this cosmos. A wonderful stress buster – open fields, clear skies and sparkling stars makes one feel lighter and happier.
We have touched more than 1 Lakh families with astronomy till date, educating more than 20,000 students annually. It’s evident that we have successfully implemented astronomy and space science curriculum in the Indian education system.
We are proud to be the provider of a global launch pad for young discoverers and innovators. We have introduced novel and challenging projects to schools from NASA, ESA, DST and other agencies; every year several national level projects /competitions are conducted by us pan India for student participation. Every year we are looking to add value and increase scientific knowledge for the participants and above all pass on our passion of astronomy to the youth”
