The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has initiated the Yuva Vigyani Karyakram (YUVIKA) program to encourage students to pursue careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) and develop a passion for space science. Through this program, ISRO aims to identify and nurture talented students who have a keen interest in science and technology and inspire them to become future space scientists. Applications have been opened for this programme recently.

The YUVIKA Program’s Aim

The YUVIKA program is open to students in the 9th standard (or equivalent) from all over India. The program selects three students from each state/union territory, and they are invited to participate in a two-week residential training program at various ISRO centers across the country. The program aims to provide an opportunity for young children to explore the wonders of space science, space applications, and space technology.

The program includes lectures, interactive sessions, and hands-on training on various aspects of space science. The curriculum is designed to enhance the knowledge and skills of students and inspire them to pursue careers in the space sector.

Creating Awareness Among Students

One of the key objectives of the YUVIKA program is to create awareness among young children about the emerging trends in space science and technology. The program provides a platform for students to interact with experts in the field of space science and technology and gain insights into the latest developments and advancements in the field. This helps students to stay updated with the latest trends in the space sector and prepare for the future challenges.

Developing Problem-Solving Skills

The YUVIKA program is designed to help students develop a sense of curiosity, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills. The program encourages students to think out of the box and come up with innovative solutions to real-world problems.
