Former president A.P.J. Abdul Kalam’s relative, Sheikh Dawood, inaugurated an awareness rally on ISRO World Space Week on the occasion.

Various competitions such as quiz, exploring the science, essay writing, drawing, painting, and designing were conducted for students. An exhibition of innovations by students was held.

The winners of the competitive round would be sent to Satish Dhawan Space Centre-SHAR, Sriharikota, for the final round of competition, and the winners of the finals would be given an opportunity to witness a next spacecraft launch at Sriharikota.

The valedictory of this two-day competition-cum-exhibition would be held on Thursday.
