Experiential Learning Trip to Satish Dhawan Space Centre
SHAR ( Sriharikota Range) ISRO Facility
Date : 2.10.19 to 5.10.19
Sixteen students of classes XI and XII recently had the unique opportunity of going on an experiential learning trip to Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota as part of the World Space Week (4th – 10th October, 2019). The students were accompanied by Ms. Samira Gulati, Dean Academics and Ms. Lipi Goswami, HoD, Science. The group visited the facility on 4th October,2019. The tour started with the Space Museum, where they beheld models of numerous SLVs, dioramas and timelines of the Indian space programme. They also had the once-in-a-lifetime-opportunity of sitting in the Mission Control Centre and getting a sneak peek into what goes on behind the scenes on a launch day. The highlight of the day, however, was counting down for the launch of a weather-monitoring satellite near the Gas Cylinder Testing Facility. The day was definitely a great learning experience for the students and teachers, alike.
The group also enjoyed a sojourn in Pondicherry, Mahabalipuram and Chennai. They witnessed a surreal sunrise at Rocky Beach, followed by an educative walk on the streets of Pondicherry, visiting the Aurobindo Ashram and marvelling at French architecture. The stopover in Mahabalipuram included a visit to the Shore Temple, Krishna’s Butterball and Descent of the Ganges. The group was enlightened about the wonders of ancient Indian architecture, powerful dynasties such as those of the Pandavas and the Cholas, mythology and even about the gravity-defying structure of the ‘Butterball’. The final day in Chennai proved to be a time of relaxation and unwinding with a visit to the surreal Marina Beach and a breathtaking view from the nearby Lighthouse, followed by a short visit to T. Nagar.
The entire trip proved to be an exciting and educative learning experience for the students for which they thanked Ms Mallika Preman, Principal , for this wonderful opportunity.

They had a lifetime experience of visiting the Kennedy Space Centre Visitors Complex where they saw real rockets in the rocket garden and real space shuttles which had travelled to the moon and the red planet Mars for the first time. The students were also briefed about the team work and close coordination between the ground-based and space -based personnel to ensure the success of a mission undertaken.
A tour around the city of New York to see the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, the Twin Towers, the Central Park and the Time Square was enthralling. A visit to the Rockefeller Centre, Brooklyn Bridge and other famous landmarks of New York kept the team mesmerised. An experience of having a 360 degree aerial view of the New York City from the 102nd floor of One World Observatory was an experience of its kind. The visit to the Cocoa Beach and Walmart were replete with loads of fun.
The visiting team also had a wonderful experience of the spectacular fireworks behind the Cinderella Castle, the enchantment of being at the Wizardly World of Harry Potter. A fun filled and an adventurous day spent at Disney Land Magic Kingdom was indeed magical. Here the children enjoyed various Disney shows and programs and many exciting adventure rides.
