ISRO Cyberspace Competition 2020

ISRO is looking for Students for Young Scientist Programme, Registrations till April 3

ISRO started the ‘Young Scientist Programme’ or ‘YUva VIgyani KAryakram’ (YUVIKA) for school children to arouse their interest in space technology, space science and space applications

Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) had announced a new initiative aiming at school children called ‘Young Scientist Programme’ or ‘YUva VIgyani KAryakram’ (YUVIKA), last month. The Program aims at imparting basic knowledge on space technology, space science and space applications to young school goers with the intent of arousing their interest in the emerging areas of space activities.

ISRO, in a fresh notification on its social media handles, today announced the availability of a few seats for this programme. Interested students, who have just completed 9th standard (in the academic year 2018 to 2019) and waiting to join 10th standard (or have just joined 10th grade), can apply for the programme online from 25th of March 6:00 PM IST to 3rd April 6:00 PM IST.

The Young Scientist Programme will be conducted for a duration of two weeks across four centres of ISRO during the second half of May 2019, which is usually a holiday season for kids, and the schedule will include invited talks, experience sharing by the eminent scientists, facility and lab visits, exclusive sessions for discussions with experts, practical and feedback sessions, says ISRO on its website.

Also, 3 students from each State or Union Territory will be selected to participate in this programme covering CBSE, ICSE and State syllabus. The selection of the students would be based on their performance in the 8th Standard, which includes both academic and extracurricular activities.

The provisionally selected candidates will be requested to send the attested copies of the relevant certificates through e-mail. And the final selection list will be announced on 13 April 2019, after verifying the certificates provided by the students, says ISRO.

The selected candidates’ expenditure, which includes II AC fare by train for student and guardian or parent from the nearest railway station to the reporting centre and back, course material, lodging and boarding, will be borne by ISRO. Further to that, selected students will be accommodated in ISRO guest houses and hostels. Interested students can go get more information on the Young Scientist Programme (YUVIKA), and apply on the official ISRO website.

    Very nice idea taken by Isro. But in rural area schools co curricular activities are not conducted regularly. So weitage to that area is to be decreased for the sake of rural children.
