The students were made to do certain activities such as the training to become an astronaut. Also the students were told that in order to become an astronaut, first they should become a pilot.
The students were taught to make a rocket & once the students made the rockets they were taken to the open where they launched them. After that the students saw a PowerPoint presentation on topics related to space. The students were given different tasks, such as, to make a parachute by using their own brains as to how the students could prevent the egg from breaking which was kept inside the cup. The students had to assume an egg to be a man. The students were asked to make such a parachute which would help them land safely after throwing it from a height. Therefore each group came up with different ideas and style and were given points accordingly. At the end the students made bridges which was another group task.
Different question were asked from the students in an interactive session.
