More than 1,100 students and teachers of the reputed Vidya Valley School, here screamed with joy when Vandana Suryawanshi became the first foreign teacher to be chosen for a prestigious US space programme next April. And she herself is already looking forward to share the knowledge, which she gains there with her pupils. A thrilled Vandana, who teaches at the school, said; I had submitted a project titled “The effect of atmospheric pressure and gravity on human beings and plants, on earth and in micro-gravity, which was approved. I got a congratulatory message on January 24th”, followed by the announcement this week.
A non-profit organisation, the Space Foundation encourages and supports space activities, space professionals and education about space. Each year, 20 liaison teachers are selected based on various criteria and they attend workshops, learn how to teach about space, essentially using the thrill of outer space to teach science. Vandana, 48 years, said; “she would travel to Colorado Springs in mid-April for the training programme”. IANS.
