Astronomy and our universe have been fascinating young minds and children want to explore the secrets of the universe. The Astronomy Club of our school has 47 students from Class VI to Class X. This club has been introduced to inculcate scientific temper among the students by introducing concepts of science through a process of inquiry, experimentation and analysis by showing them videos & performing some activities on different topics. Selected students of the Astronomy Club got a chance to attend workshop, some of them are as follows:
