Udupi: Students from Silas International School, recently attended the Space Challenge programme at NASA's Kennedy Space Centre, in Orlando, Florida.
The objective of the trip was to enable young Silasians to experience the iconic American Space Research programme. The trip was organised for 10 days and was a study-cum-sightseeing trip where students got an opportunity to visit important landmarks in the US. The young minds spent the week touring and learning about facilities at KSC and interacting with astronauts. It was an experience of a lifetime.
Students accompanied by the vice principal Elizabeth Joseph were brimming with stories about astronauts to experiencing zero gravity, after the visit to the Kennedy Space Centre at Orlando.
The students also had an exciting time at Sea World, Universal Studios, Statue of Liberty and Niagara Falls where they enjoyed the rides and attractions.
"We want to organise more trips like this for the coming batches. We would like more students to be able to visit organisations like NASA and ISRO to gain exposure," said Deirdra Maben principal of the school.
“This trip could be a turning point for some students who gained immensely from the experience. Some of them have been inspired to take up space science as their career,” she said.
