Children are considered the building block of our nation. The programme ‘YUVIKA’ is aimed at creating awareness about the emerging trends in science and technology amongst the youngsters. These youngsters are the future leaders who will harness Science and Technology to further contribute to the development of the nation.
According to the official release of ISRO, this programme is chalked out to “Catch them young.” And further, the programme will focus on encouraging more students to pursue Science, technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) based research/career.
