New Delhi [India] Published : February 17, 2024

 The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is set to organise a special programme for school children called the "Young Scientist Programme" "YUva VIgyani KAryakram" (YUVIKA).

The key objective of this initiative is to impart basic knowledge on space science, space technology and Space Applications to younger students in emerging trends in space science and technology.

ISRO said it has chalked out this programme to "Catch them young". Youngsters can be involved and excel in space science and technology if they get an opportunity because they are the future building blocks of the nation.

The YUVIKA programme is also expected to encourage more students to pursue science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) based research and aligned careers.

The Young Scientist Programme - YUVIKA was conceived to impart basic knowledge on Space Science, Space Technology and space applications to younger students with a preference to rural areas of the country.

The programme is thus aimed at creating awareness about the emerging trends in science and technology amongst the school-going students. The programme envisages two weeks of class room training, practical demonstration of experiments, hands-on CANSAT, a Robotic kit, Model rocketry interactions with ISRO scientists and field visits.

The programme was conducted successfully in 2019, 2022 and 2023 with the participation of 111, 153 and 337 students, respectively, representing every State and Union Territory.

The course will cover classroom lectures, hands-on activities like robotics challenges, DIY assembly of rockets/satellites, sky gazing, etc., technical facility visits, and interaction with space scientists.
