The school has tied up with NASA for the NASA Educational Programme and is the first school in the country to set up a Planetarium and Space Centre at the school premises. The school is the member of the International Space Society. The students of the school attend sponsored conferences, special events, and projects, and gain privileged access to the world’s leading space scientists and engineers, space agency and other government leaders, space entrepreneurs, leading space activists, and fellow space enthusiasts. School also has tied up with Pushpa Gujaral Science City, Jalandhar for annual sky gazing session. To further promote students’ interest in space exploration and create space awareness, National conferences on space and exhibitions are organised based on the themes of Astronomy and Space Exploration which attracts the space enthusiasts nationwide.

As a part of the collaboration between International Space Society(ISS), India with National Space Society (NSS), US, our students were chosen as ambassadors for ISS- Kalam-NSS Indo-US Space Based Solar Power project.

To further help students explore the world of space science, school has set up Prof Suresh Naik Center for excellence in planetary science at the school campus. The center provides an opportunity to explore the world of space science to the maximum potential, during their school years. The center will equip students to develop skills and knowledge in the areas like

  • Telescope Making
