ISRO's Young Scientist Programme (YUVIKA) Opens Registration for 2024

The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is arranging a unique project for school children dubbed the "Young Scientist Programme" (YUVIKA), which aims to address the insatiable curiosity of young brains.

The primary goal of this program is to provide younger students with a fundamental understanding of space science, space technology, and space applications in light of rising trends in space science and technology.

ISRO has designed this initiative to "catch them young". as we all know, young people may get involved and flourish in space science and technology if given the opportunity, since they are the future building blocks of our country.

Children and youth have fascination for space and the universe. They are very curious and wish to know everything about all the celestial phenomena.

The YUVIKA programme is also expected to encourage more students to pursue Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) based research and aligned careers.

Young Scientist Programme - YUVIKA was conceived to impart basic knowledge on Space Science, Space Technology and Space Applications to the younger students with a preference to rural areas of the country. The programme is thus aimed at creating awareness about the emerging trends in science and technology amongst the school going students. The programme envisages two weeks’ class room training, practical demonstration of experiments, hands on CANSAT, Robotic kit, Model rocketry interactions with ISRO scientists and field visits.

The programme was conducted successfully in 2019, 2022 and 2023 with the participation of 111, 153 and 337 students respectively, representing each and every State and Union Territory of India. The students were divided into five batches based on the geographical locations and imparted training at VSSC, URSC, SAC, NRSC, NESAC, SDSC SHAR & IIRS.

ISRO received an overwhelming response for YUVIKA - 2023, as more than 1.25 lakhs students had registered for YUVIKA - 2023 from all corners of India. The students are selected from all states and union territories based on marks scored in their last examination, co-curricular and extra-curricular activities.
