On 9th August 2017 Ms. Swati from Mission Discovery came to the school for an induction about Mission Discovery program. It is a space and stem programme which encourages students to explore science and technology and send their ideas to space. Students indulge in highest level NASA Leadership training and scientific research, work on biomedical projects and launch their ideas to space. Mission discovery gives the students a chance to engage with astronauts, NASA personnel and PHD scientists and it provides a great platform for students to get enrich themselves. The program is going to be held at Shiv Nadar School, Gurugram from 3rd to 7th October. The students will be divided into teams and will be given specific topics to research about and give their ideas the best idea will be sent in space. Mission discovery inculcated many qualities into the students like leadership and they learnt a lot from engaging with new people and working with professors and astronauts. By working with mission discovery students get results and watch experiments. Participants are given certificates from SpaceX and NASA. If we knew what we were doing it wouldn’t be called research. After all the only source of knowledge is experience.
