Ninth class students of Ravindra Bharathi School, Tirupati, V.Tina and M. Sivani, have designed a dwelling place on space.
National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) conducts space-related contests every year by involving schoolchildren in which the Space Settlement Design Contest is conducted for participants.
The six entries sent by Ravindra Bharathi students secured one first prize and five second prizes. With this, the school has bagged prizes for the fifth year in a row.
The project ‘Dhruva’ involved seven students, including the above two from Tirupati, one from Nellore and four from Hyderabad branches, who provided innovative suggestions on making a dwelling place on ‘Dhruva’, the star found in Indian mythology.
Tina and Sivani gave ideas to tap the resources available on Dhruva, recycling of the products, crops suitable for cultivation, etc., which got them the second prize.
Thirty students from the school are participating in the 32nd International Space Development Conference to be held at San Diego, California, from May 23 to 27, the zonal in-charge Ravi Kumar said.
