Ujjain (Madhya Pradesh): Two bright students from Christu Jyoti Convent School in Ujjain have secured a spot in ISRO’s ATL Space Challenge. Anvay Joshi and Ali Asgar Attar, guided by their mentor Shobha Shinde, have developed a groundbreaking ‘Satellite Receiving Antenna.’ This innovative device allows for the retrieval of pictorial weather information without relying on the internet, showcasing their ingenuity.

Remarkably, their entry was the sole selection from non-ATL schools across Madhya Pradesh. The ATL Space Challenge 2021, initiated by Atal Innovation Mission (AIM) of NITI Aayog in collaboration with ISRO and CBSE, aims to foster space innovation among school students nationwide. It provides a platform for students from grades 6 to 12 to address space technology challenges in the digital era, encouraging innovation.

Principal Sister Merlin, alongside teachers and fellow students, congratulated Anvay and Ali on their remarkable achievement. The ATL Space Challenge received over 2500 submissions from both ATL and non-ATL students, with 6500 participants nationwide. Out of these, 75 top innovators were recognized. Prof K Vijay Raghavan, Principal Scientific Adviser to the Government of India, highlighted the significance of space science and its associated challenges during the virtual event announcing the winners.
