Gurgaon: Orchids The International School, renowned for its K12 educational programs, is thrilled to announce the launch of “Go Cosmo – Your Ticket to Space,” an exceptional Astronomy Fair in Delhi-National Capital Region (NCR). This three-day cosmic celebration will be hosted at Orchids Sector 113 Campus from June 21st to 23rd. It promises an engaging experience for space enthusiasts of all ages, featuring interactive activities, educational sessions, and enjoyable learning opportunities. Following its resounding success in Bangalore, Mumbai, Pune, Hyderabad, Kolkata and Chennai where it attracted nearly 30,000 students who embraced their love for Astronomy, Go Cosmo now makes its debut in Delhi-NCR.

Dr. Ajit Singh, VP of Academics-Astronomy at Orchids The International School said, “Space exploration symbolizes our innate desire for adventure and discovery. As the Indian space industry is projected to reach USD 33 billion in the next decade, it’s imperative that we integrate space education into our curriculum. This not only ignites curiosity but also provides our students with the necessary skills to excel in this expanding field. The Go Cosmo Space Exploration Fair is designed to bring that sense of wonder to our students and the broader community. Watching students in Bangalore, Mumbai, Pune, Hyderabad, Kolkata and Chennai engage enthusiastically with the Go Cosmo fair fills us with immense pride. This event is a launchpad for dreams and innovations that will shape the future and prepare young minds to contribute significantly to India’s burgeoning space sector.”

Sharing her enthusiasm for Go Cosmo, Sumitra Goswami, Senior VP of Academics at Orchids The International School, emphasized the event’s multifaceted nature, stating, “Go Cosmo is the evidence of our dedication to helping students of all ages develop a strong appreciation for science and technology. Through interactive activities and hands-on experiences, our goal is to spark participants’ interest in physics, astronomy, and cosmology. Integrating entrepreneurial activities to empower our students to innovate and create, we are dedicated to fostering student entrepreneurship within the framework of Go Cosmo. Involving students in all aspects of the event, from planning to execution, enhances their leadership skills and fosters a sense of ownership and pride in their achievements. We envision Go Cosmo as not just an educational event but also a platform for students to showcase their talents and entrepreneurial endeavors, enhancing their learning experience.”

Divya Dhirendra, Principal of Sector 113 Campus at Orchids The International School said, “We aim to ignite a passion for space science in children from an early age by offering engaging astronomy sessions for our youngest learners. Through immersive planetarium experiences and hands-on activities in our space labs, children learn through play. As they progress to upper elementary grades, they gain real-life exposure to astronomy through Space Camps, which offer a deeper exploration of the subject. Our Astroverse Club on Discord also regularly engages students with fun and educational content. The Go Cosmo Astronomy Fair underscores our commitment to sparking curiosity and wonder about the universe in young minds, helping them develop a deep appreciation for astronomy and its relevance to their everyday lives.”

Harsh Gupta, VP of Academics-Student Welfare at Orchids The International School said, “Go Cosmo transcends traditional learning by offering hands-on experiences that spark curiosity and ignite a passion for space sciences. By engaging students in enjoyable yet educational activities, we aim to inspire the next generation of scientific explorers and innovators. This enthusiasm for science will undoubtedly help India establish itself as a leader in the global space arena. Our goal is to create a learning environment that goes beyond the classroom, encouraging students to dream big and innovate.”
