Testimonials

2016

" It all started with the introduction of the ‘Astronomy Club’ in my school by SPACE, which proved to be the stepping stone for me to the amazing world of Space Sciences. The various activities, lectures, seminars as well as the star-gazing nights organized by SPACE were enriching processes to be a part of and have cast a long-lasting impression on my mind. I am highly indebted and grateful for all the help and direction provided to me by SPACE, and especially Mr. Vikrant Narang, for all his motivating words and guidance. "

"This is to appreciate that the 'Overnight Sky Observation' Programme at Sariska for students of D.A.V. Public School, Sector-14, Gurgaon - Module 1 & 2 on 14th May, 2016 was very meticulously planned and effectively executed by the members of the SPACE team. All of them worked dedicatedly and enthusiastically with the students throughout the programme and motivated the students to observe the sky, celestial bodies, galaxies and stars minutely with all details. The accommodation and food provided were of high quality. The programme was a great success and we extend our heartfelt gratitude and thanks to your esteemed organisation and team members who were associated with this programme. This brings the programme that was launched in 2014-15 and got delayed due to some unavoidable reasons to an end."

"On 10th December 2015, we, the students of Ryan International School, Greater Noida were in Astroport, Sariska. We all learnt several new things and enjoyed ourselves as well. Amanjyot Sir took our session. For a student like me, who wishes to be a future Astronomer, this was a really needed trigger to start my journey of becoming an Astronomer. It is also necessary to take part in your nearest Astronomy Club for the same reason. We learned about Houses of Sky, Constellations, Telescopes and saw many amazing things in the sessions. Reading from books or seeing practically, both varies. I found answers to many of my questions which were alive inside my mind. I was satisfied. At least.. This was my first step ..
All I can say is to thank SPACE that they are developing interest in Astronomy for students and I wish there could have been more modules than 2 at our school level. On the whole, it was a wonderful experience.
Thanks SPACE.."

Ms Priya Singhal, Student, Member of Space Astronomy Club, Ryan International School Greater Noida.


"“PROJECT PARIDHI” launched by the members of SPACE Club was a successful event which was designed to sensitize the students about the environment of the Earth and to know about its geographical features. The event gave ample scope to the students to become “Student Earth Scientists" and helped them inculcate the good values required for becoming a resource person for the Nation to lead it to new heights. I wish to see the same zeal and enthusiasm in all the members of the Club in future as well. All the best for the same."

FEEDBACK on NASA TOURS
A group of 40 students along with three teachers embarked on a 10 day trip to NASA on 10th June.It was a once in a life –time opportunity for the students to experience and know about space-from its dramatic past and exciting present to its compelling future.

This edition of NASA trip annually organized by Ryan Group of Institutions was very exciting and productive for the students who were equipped with the brilliant scientific skill set as well as the strong desire to know and understand spirit,thanks to the dynamic leadership and unmatched guidance provided by our Chairman Dr.A.F. Pinto and Managing Director Madam Grace Pinto.

Students spent two days touring the facilities at Space Centre where they had an interactive session with the NASA engineers. They were divided into four groups for various activities and training. They also enjoyed a 3D movie Hubble and got an opportunity to hear first hand stories from astronaut Samuel.T. Durrance.The students displayed great zeal while enquiring from him about his experiences in Space.

The students also visited the Museum of Natural Sciences where they did the Mission control activity under which they were asked to accomplish various mission challenges. The shuttle launch experience and the IMAX Film on International Space station screened for them exposed the students to the experiences of Astronauts.

The package was an exotic mix of edutainment. The students had an absolutely fantastisc time at Disneyland and Universal Studios where they enjoyed unique attractions. The visit to New York, one of the most enchanting cities of the world left each one of us mesmerized. The sight of ever imposing Statue of Liberty made our history books live in front of our eyes.

Last but not the least, It was an amazing experience to touch the piece of moon, which was brought back by one of the astronauts. To be very candid and precise, the thundering but rhythmic noise of Niagra still echoes and resounds.

Really, eagerly waiting again for such an exotic experience

Mrs. Seema Kasumra, School Administration, Ryan International School, Faridabad.

Be it the paper work pertaining to Visa Applications or round the clock assistance , your support is truly appreciated.
Our tour guide Mr.Sachin Bhambha's efforts, patience ,deliberations ,unbound energy and an infectious spirit of adventure  truly deserves a special mention.
Thank you and a big thumbs up to the entite team. "

"My ward Sanjana of Ryan International Vasant traveled to USA with a Group. She came back home with tears in her eyes because she didn't wanted to come back home. She says that these were the best days and wants to back again. She is in class 12th and next year her school will be over but she really wants to go with this group of yours next year also. She is saying that she wished that the days of stay up were more. I am satisfied with your services and thankful to your staff for giving her such an amazing trip."

Mr. Sanjay, ( F/o Sanjana, studying in Ryan International School, Vasant Kunj).


" It was a tour which pleased our minds and souls to an extent which we can not forget even if we wish to. Right from the very beginning it was a very well organised and equally well executed tour. Inconvenience and confusion was long out of our way. Everything from  induction for Visa preparation to handling and preparation of documents, to make foreign exchange and US sim card available at the right time were managed with professional competence. All thanx to Mr Jayanto, Ms Sonali and other team members.

A very special thanx to Mr Sachin Bhamba for his valuable guidance given to the students and teachers at every stage of the tour. His explanations about astronomy made even commerce students inquisitive about space science and even science students got to know what actually science means. His knowledge, humour, care, guidance and singing abilities made us give him the name 'Magnet'. His management skills worked very well to impart education, entertainment and even modulating the behaviour of the students only to become independent and better human beings.

I truly believe that due to time and fixed itinerary constraints we got whatever best could have possibly be done but then also I wish that 'Arav' would also have been a part of the tour who unfortunately couldn't clear the Visa interview, we could get some more time in NewYork at the Time Square and the hectic schedule between Newyork, Niagra, and Washington be eased out. All the hotel accommodations were very nice especially the Seralago resort in Orlando but I think it would add to students delight if they could allow the students to shake their legs at least once.

Overall it was a memorable experience being a part of this tour. Thanx to the entire team."

Mr. Abhimanyu Gupta (PGT Commerce, Gd Goenka Public School).


"I am glad & obliged to the management for giving me a chance to visit Nasa ,being a Science graduate i myself got to learn a lot & i also got a chance to guide the students ,the trip was very fruitful as the children & myself came to know a lot about what is going on in & around the world & what scientists have done for us, the students got a good exposer , the facilities provided during the trip were awesome & home like guide & atmosphere was provided which helped the students to enjoy a lot , the place of sight seeing chosen were also good & gave educative information they were interesting & entertaining too.
