Ongole: DEO VS Subba Rao has advised the Class IX students in the district to in for online registrations with the Indian Space Research Organization to get a chance to participate in the Young Scientist Programme, Yuva Vigyani Karyakram (YUVIKA), scheduled in the month of May 2020.
He said that ISRO was organising the Young Scientist Programme by primarily aiming at imparting basic knowledge on space technology, space science and space applications to the younger ones with the intent of arousing their interest in the emerging areas of space activities.
He informed that ISRO chalked out this programme to 'Catch them Young', and aimed at creating awareness amongst the youngsters who are the future building blocks of the nation. In the two-week programme during summer holidays, there will be invited extensive lectures, experience sharing by the eminent scientists, facility and lab visits, exclusive sessions for discussions with experts, practical and feedback sessions.
Subba Rao informed that a student from the district has participated in the first session of the YUVIKA last year, as one of the three students from the state. He announced that ISRO is already accepting the online applications for the Young Scientist Programme at https://yuvika.isro.gov.in/yuvika/register.jsp and the last date and time for application is February 24 at 6 pm. He advised the Class IX students to register for the programme for a life-changing opportunity.
