Club Structure


Thank you for making Astronomy Summer Camp 2020 a huge Success!

SPACE India launched our first Astronomy Summer Camp 2020 during the summer breaks of 2020. We received an overwhelming response from our students. Over one thousand students from all over India took part in the Astronomy Summer Camp 2020 (some students joined us from other countries as well).  Astronomy Summer Camp 2020 was the debut of SPACE into online education. The camp featured 10 exciting days of live interactions with our astronomers with hand on activities. The camp was conducted for school students of standard 3rd and above to introduce them to astronomy and space sciences. During the camp, students learnt about stargazing, our universe, stars and their life cycle and even measured the circumference of the Earth. Thank you to our students community and partner schools for making the Summer Camp a huge success. We look forward to serving you with ever greater enthusiasm in our  Astronomy Summer Camp in 2021 edition.
