17 students from DehraDun on US Trip to participate in NASA certification programme

A team of students, including 17 students from DehraDun are in Orlando for a lifetime's  experience. The 17 students from DehraDun are from The Aryan School. They are accompanied by a teacher.

Over the next 12 days, the children will participate in a Nasa certification programme on space science at the Kennedy Space Center in Orlando, spend a day each at Disney Park, Island of Adventure and Universal Studios before travelling to Boston for a day-long Robotics workshop at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Thereafter, the students will travel to New York for a Broadway workshop and a trip to the Statue of Liberty. On the final day, the students have a Wall Street workshop to attend and a trip to the Empire State Building, a famous landmark in the Manhattan skyline.

"The field of space science and robotics has always fascinated students of all ages. Today it has emerged as one of the most revered fields in the world. Organizations like Nasa, Cosmodome and ESA have taken the initiative to educate and train the young minds to be the workforce of tomorrow," said Anirudh Jhajharia (business head east India) of Inizio Edutech Pvt Ltd, the company that is coordinating the trip.

Apart from an insight into space and robotics, the cross-cultural exposure as they travel from one city to another and mix with students from different counties is expected to make it an enriching experience.
