Sastra Pratibha Study Tour Report

2018-19

Sastra Prathibha Contest is an examination conducted by Science India Forum to develop in students  more affinity towards pure science. It is indeed a proud  achievement for the school to have three students – Om Gupta, Mihir Dinesh and Sanjeev Kumar - selected to be a part of the top 16 achievers of this exam and thereby winning a chance to make a study tour to Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala on 19 April, 2018.                                                                                                                            

The very first place of visit was theVikram Sarabhai Space Centre (VSSC), the birthplace of the Indian Space Programme. This institute serves for the designing of Satellite Launching Vehicles(SLVs).Students also visited Sree Chitra Tirunal Institute for Medical Sciences and Technology (SCTIMST) where they learned about various aspects of neurology and the functioning of medical technology . The Rajiv Gandhi Centre for Biotechnology and National Institute for Interdisciplinary Science and Technology(NIIST) were other institutions toured by the students.

The study tour was, without a doubt, an inspiring way to instill the love of Science and stoke the curiosity of budding researchers and scientists.
