Universe in the School

“Astronomy compels the soul to look upward and lead us from this world to another.”

Universe in the School (UITS) programme is a distinctive model that allows students who are astronomy enthusiasts to connect with the vast space above us. It familiarizes Astronomy and Space Sciences through a curriculum based academic educational program which is totally based on National Curriculum Framework. Further the program is 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.

SPACE derived this concept of establishing UITS in a way which is fully customizable, dynamic, empowering, simple, effective and sustainable. UITS program aims to develop the curiosity, competency, creativity and caring of learners. This is the most advanced and quality leadership program, which has been developed by an in-house research team of SPACE to align with the holistic development of the students.

Universe in the School program bridges the gap between: Innovation – Education – Evolution.

The emphasis for the schools will be on:

UITS is Exclusively based on Six Main Pillars

Stargazing interests the psyches of all. UITS provides a stage to youthful personalities where students excel their knowledge about Space Science and comprehend that science can be best learnt by visualizing and performing activities. Students are urged to pose inquiries and apply their thinking to de-bewilder logical wonder. The programme acquaints students with a captivating universe of Astronomy and Space Sciences through activities, examinations, recreations and tests and tries to spread learning of stargazing and space sciences among the general masses particularly the young personalities. UITS gives a chance to convey our confidence in creating logical disposition among kids, to make a wise and diagnostic worldwide network. This methodology not just makes them increasingly certain about taking care of science issues, but also help analyse some real ongoing life issues.
