Sally Ride EarthKAM
The Sally Ride EarthKAM (Earth Knowledge Acquired by Middle School Students) is an educational outreach program by NASA, executed in India by SPACE. Two students (Tashu Agarwala of Grade XI and Manavi Lahoti of Grade XII) were part of the program, which was held from 12th July 2021 to 15th July, 2021. This distinctive program allowed students to request images of their chosen location from a special digital camera set up at the ISS (International Space Station).
The Program was a wonderful opportunity for them to further their knowledge, not only in Space Science but also in Earth and Environmental Sciences. The whole experience was full of excitement and adventure that follows the challenge of participating in space missions. The Program was a new and inspiring experience for them.
