Universe in the School

The Universe in the School Programme is a unique model that popularizes Astronomy and Space Sciences through a curriculum based academic educational program, accompanied by workshops, outreach events, competitions, trips and projects and is organized throughout the academic year, and among all the classes (K-12). It is a self-sustaining model, thereby requiring no additional funding from the School.

Astronomy intrigues the minds of all. Therefore UITS provides a platform to young minds where students excels their knowledge about Space science and understand that science can be best learnt by doing. Students are encouraged to ask questions and apply their reasoning to de-mystify scientific phenomenon. The Programme introduces students to an enthralling world of Astronomy and Space Sciences through activities, experiments, games and quizzes and seeks to spread knowledge of astronomy and space sciences among the general masses especially young minds.  UITS provides an opportunity to communicate our belief in developing scientific temperament among children, to create an intelligent and analytic global community. This approach not only makes them more confident in handling science problems, but also in handling real life issues.

This Program bridges the gap between Innovation, Education and Evolution. Where the emphasis for the schools is on the concepts:
