The real issues of each age group were taken and practical solutions were offered. Parents brought up lots of queries which were satisfactorily answered. The parents appreciated the sessions whole-heartedly and the feedback was excellent.

One of the most fascinating thing about the universe is the universe itself. Today, we got the golden opportunity to view and capture our planet Earth from the space while sitting in a room. It was all amazing. A normal person busy in his work schedule would never have imagined the he/she could see the space from an astronauts perspective. The workshop was about the Sally ride EarthRAM and its ability to let the students remotely control a digital camera mounted on the ISS i.e International Space Station. We never knew that it takes 16 orbits in a day with a speed of 9.67 km/s. We had to chose places on the request to the ISS like London, Pakistan, Santa Monica, Canada, etc. We would get the picture when it comes on that particular latitude and longitude and could analyze it. This workshop was very inquisitive and learning was made fun. Thanks to everyone who gave us this opportunity!
