THE FUTURE OF INDIA NEEDS HELP
The post reads as below :
I’ve been reading this news about 4 students in Rourkela winning a NASA competition for a few days. They needed to conceptualize a model of an outer-space settlement that could accommodate 10,000 people. These students bagged the second price. There were more than 200 entries from more than 90 schools from all over the world and the students of the Ispat English Medium School run by the Rourkela Steel Plant, were awarded the prize for their project titled ‘Eden’. The NASA has invited these young students to go there and conduct further research. Sadly, up till now, no funds are forthcoming for their trip to NASA.
Although they have applied to various places, including the office of the Orissa chief minister, they haven’t received a response yet. It will be tragic if they cannot go due to lack of funds. They need I think around Rs. 5,00,000 (approximately $11,000). If you think you can help in anyway, please get in touch with the school mentioned above, or spread this piece of information through email or your blog.
