Bangalore: To spark curiosity and a sense of wonder about the universe among young minds, Orchids International School, one of India’s leading K12 school chains, hosted an exciting Space Camp at Valley Vibes resort. The students could gaze at the celestial bodies through state-of-the-art Newtonian and Dobsonian telescopes, immersing themselves in the practical experience for their Astronomy class within the enjoyable settings of a fun-filled space camp.

During this memorable camp, under the shimmering starlit sky, students had the chance to peer at celestial bodies through a reflecting telescope. The stargazing session allowed students to observe captivating celestial objects such as Saturn with its Moon Titan, Jupiter with its four largest moons, the Orion Nebula, Cassiopeia, and Venus. Additionally, students received instruction on the operation of telescopes, planetary stars, and more during the Constellation session. More than 500 students from various branches, including Panathur, Mysore Road, Annapoorneshwari Nagar, Whitefield, and Sarjapur Road among others, participated in this engaging field trip, which extended their learning beyond the classroom walls.

Not only does this stimulate a life-long curiosity among the students but also it gives them real-life exposure that substantiates what we teach them in the classroom. This comprehensive experience encourages the students to assimilate knowledge and compete in national and international level space science competitions.”
