ISRO exhibition throws light on space science
Meerut: Avenue Public School is all set to play host to science enthusiasts with the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) space and science exhibition. The exhibition is a two-day event at the school in Ganga Nagar. Satellite models, informative panels, rockets and even models of GeoSynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV) and Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) will be at a display.
The exhibition is being hosted by The Avenue Public School (TAPS) in collaboration with My City My Initiative (MCMI) - an initiative of the district administration to bring city residents to the forefront.
The exhibition will be open for all from 3pm to 5pm on Friday and Saturday.
Deepak Pandya, who's heading a team of five engineers from ISRO, said," We have brought with us models of 12 satellites including one working model, three rockets, informative panels, the first 3-D image of moon taken by ISRO, GSLV, GSLV Mark III, PSLV, test model of satellite that was used for Mars mission and many more things. Our main objective is to make the students and the city residents aware about space and satellites about which they read in books but have not seen yet." "We have got registrations from over 30 CBSE and ICSE schools from Meerut and even two schools from Baghpat have registered themselves to be part of the exhibition. Also, students from 12 UP board schools - which have been adopted under MCMI - will be a part of the exhibition too," said Manish Saini, manager, TAPS.
The ISRO team has even brought a documentary to show to the kids, which aims at guiding them on how to join ISRO.
