Innovate, win a trip to NASA

Here is an opportunity for bright and young school students to win a chance to travel to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) in the U.S.

The Hindu, along with Space Kidz, presents ‘The Young Scientist India–2015’ to recognise bright and young school students.

A one-of-its-kind science hunt programme in the country, students from classes IX to XII (and also in pre-university 1 and 2 and intermediate first and second years) can participate by creating a project in the following categories: aeronautical, electrical, electronics, robotics and space sciences.

The 25 best projects in each category will be chosen and these students will have to appear for the final round of the competition to be held on February 2 at Hindustan University, Chennai.

The event will be judged by eminent professors and scientists. The winner and the winning school’s science teacher or principal will win a trip to NASA and they will also be co-pilot for a day at a premium aviation school in the U.S. 

The runner-up will win a ticket to Malaysia along with the school principal or science teacher.

Entry is free and the contest is powered by Hindustan University. Students from any school board can participate.

Government school students from all over the country are encouraged to participate and special prizes will be awarded to them.
