Don Bosco High School recently had the honour of receiving a distinguished guest, Mr. Satish Nayak, the President of the Association of Friends of Astronomy, as part of its ongoing commitment to cultivating young minds with knowledge and curiosity. The event was an amazing endeavour designed to spark Class VI students' already-sparking interest in the fascinating fields of astronomy and the wonders of the universe.
The decision to invite Mr. Satish Nayak was a response to the students' genuine enthusiasm and passion for exploring the cosmos. With a captivating blend of expertise and enthusiasm, Mr. Satish embarked on a cosmic journey, taking the eager students along with him. His presentation was not just informative but also engaging, as he seamlessly blended scientific insights with captivating anecdotes.
One of the highlights of the session was Mr. Satish's open invitation to the students to visit the Observatory, an opportunity that left them brimming with excitement. The prospect of witnessing celestial wonders through powerful telescopes and learning directly from experts was met with great anticipation.
As the session drew to a close, it transitioned into an interactive segment, featuring a quiz that put the students' newfound knowledge to the test.

This discussion not only broadened the students' horizons but also underscored the interdisciplinary nature of science.
