ISRO has announced the names of 45 schools it has adopted in the first phase of the initiative launched by NITI Aayog and the Indian Space Research Organisation to promote education in the field of STEM, space education and space technology-related innovations for school students. ISRO has adopted a total of 100 ATLs across the country. Students involved in these ATLs would also be invited as guests to witness future launches from Sriharikota.
