GUWAHATI, Aug 19 - NPS International School, Guwahati, has decided to send a meritorious student of the State from a rural background to NASA, USA, free of cost along with a group of 20 NPS students in the second week of September this year.

This entire group of students will also get the opportunity to undergo an astronaut training experience (ATX) at NASA.

Announcing this, Jitendra Nath Das, director, NPS International School, said that every year NPS sends its team of students to NASA to explore, discover and understand the universe.

�This year, we have decided to send a student from a rural background who was among the top five rank holders in the recently declared HSLC examination conducted by the SEBA. We have already formulated a specific strategy to decide the student who will accompany 20 other students from NPS International School in their trip to NASA. The selection criteria in this regard will be totally on the basis of merit,� Das said.

Urging eligible students in this regard to apply as soon as possible to avail of the opportunity, Das said that students may get in touch with the school on its website.

�Our prime objective is to provide international exposure to students of the region. Even though we follow CBSE and CBSE(I) curricula, we want to contribute to the betterment of students from the rural areas of the State as well. We will keep on increasing the number of such meritorious Assam students from rural background to NASA in the years to come,� Das said.

NPS International School has been sending its team of students to NASA since 2011. Last year also, the school sent its students to NASA�s John F Kennedy Space Center, the world�s gateway to exploring, discovering and understanding the universe.

�Altogether 37 NPS students went for a three-day astronaut training experience (ATX) in NASA whose mission is to pioneer the future in space exploration, scientific discovery and aeronautics research,� he added.

During their visit, students experienced the sights, sounds and sanctions of a vertical launch in mankind�s most complex vehicle � the space shuttle.
