Class VII students of Vidya Valley School participated in a global competition ‘Cubes in Space’ conducted by idoodleedu Inc. for children between the age group of 11 to 18-years-old.
The purpose of the competition was to design and propose experiments which can be launched into space on a NASA sounding rocket and zero pressure scientific balloon. The student’s challenge was that the object of the experiment needed to fit in a cube with the dimension of 4cm x 4cm x 4cm x 4cm.
After thorough research, six proposals were submitted for the competition out of which five were approved after a review process. One of the five approved experiments will be sent to space. The proposed object will be sent to space confined in the specific cube and brought back to earth. The material will be exposed to extreme radiation and other extreme conditions in space. The launch will be in August-September at the NASA Columbia facility, New Mexico. Once the material comes back, the students will perform experiments on it again to study the changes caused by the extreme conditions out outer space.
The participants from Vidya Valley included Runjhun Shah (team leader), Priyal Pandey, Noori Agarwal, Sohha Diwan, Apurva Desai and Anoushka Waje, who executed the experiments successfully under the guidance of principal Nalini Sengupta and science facilitator Joyeeta Adhikari.
The team has been invited for the CiS-RocketFest 2018.
