We hosted a one-of-its-kind stargazing camp night, the first time in Hyderabad
- 10 June 2022
For the first time in Hyderabad, an extravagant overnight stargazing camp was organized by Oakridge International School, Bachupally recently, supported by Society for Space Education Research and Development (SSERD), as part of the Summer Learning Program 2022. Children of age group 3-13 years got an opportunity to dazzle under the stars with their dear ones and friends at this one-of-its-kind stargazing night camp. It was all about discovering, learning, and enjoying the star-studded skies.
Around 50 families took part in this stargazing tour held at Oakridge Bachupally. Kids learned teamwork, how to build the tents, and enjoyed an overall camping experience. The children and their parents took the opportunity to explore and know the Night Sky and observed some of the deep sky objects like different Planets and the moon with help of the hi-end telescopes.
“Summer Learning Program 2022 was like never before, the stargazing activity was the showstopper, and setting up telescopes and watching the planets like Saturn, Jupiter, Venus, and Mars live was an exuberant experience for all of us, children came to me, and asked if they could stay back at school for some more night camps,” says Padmaja Ambaty, Camp Coordinator.
