ABU DHABI: As part of their Leadership Lectures series, Global Indian International School, Abu Dhabi announces their Space Troopers Rocketry Club for young budding rocketeers in the country. The club will give students the opportunity to learn the basics of rocket making, explore principles that make them fly and lot more. The Rocketry Club was launched on 8th October 2019 in the school’s AUH campus where Mrs Shrisudha Viswanathan, former ISRO scientist and Dr Khaled Al Hashmi, Senior Director of National Space Science and Technology Centre presided over the event, inspiring the students with tales and facts from the fascinating starry space around them. Knowledge by experience and creativity are both teachings that GIIS considers essential for growing children and this enriching session with such prominent personalities was an opportunity for the kids to learn from the very best.
