CHENNAI: St John’s Public School observed World Space Week on its campus starting on October 9.

The students were made aware of India’s role and developments in space research, exploration and travel. They were involved in India’s adventurous journey in space research and its reach by making drawings, paintings, and collage. Students also wrote articles on ‘India’s Space World’ to showcase their knowledge. The students’ art work was displayed during the World Space Week on the campus.

There was a seminar for secondary school students on the topic ‘India’s Strengths and Challenges in Space Research.’ Dr Guruvayurappan, Scientist from Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), addressed the students and took them on a scientific and literary journey to the world of space, highlighting the challenges, emphasising the eventful progress made by ISRO and their scientists through the years. He elaborated on the application of Insat, SLV and explained the voyages of the Chandrayaan and Mangalyaan missions.

Ashwin Subramaniyan, a Class 5 student who has the responsibility of reading Space News during the daily morning assembly, was the one who answered some of the challenging questions thrown to the audience by the speaker. The session proved very interactive. This programme inspired the audience towards the motto of ISRO — Research, Search and Reach.

Head boy Vaibhav Aneja and head girl Sahinya Akila welcomed the guest speaker and Karthik Balaji presented the vote of thanks.
