Please join us in listening to the ISS contact with participants at the
*Gujarat Council Of Science City, Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India* on Wednesday
AOS is anticipated at 10:18 UTC
The duration of the contact is approximately 9 minutes and 30 seconds. The
contact will be a telebridge between OR4ISS and IK1SLD in Italy. The
contact is expected to be conducted in English.
Gujarat Science City (GSC), working under the aegis of Department of
Science & Technology, Government of Gujarat, is emerging as a large-scale
science popularization platform in the country to promote innovative and
experimental activities through hands-on activities and minds-on exposures.
The approach and methodology of the Gujarat Science City is focused on
informal community based learning which is different from the formal mode
of education. All of the programs are intended to enliven the imagination,
foster creativity and develop a spirit of inquiry, especially in young
minds. Schoolchildren, during their visit, are discovering the wonders of
science and technology and get an access to the most exciting and
contemporary form of entertainment regardless of the social stratum,
education or age group and create a culture of learning.
