KIITIANS LAND IN SPACE WITH NASA PRIZE

Zenith's Labyrinth proved to be the perfect launch for students of KiiT International School as their Project bagged the 2nd Prize worldwide. Students of Grade 8 worked under the guidance of Mr. Bejoy Mathur, INLAKS Scholar and Project Coordinator for the School. This was organized by National Space Society of USA in association with NASA. Zenith's Labyrinth was the rather distinctive but apt name that they chose to call a space colony that they designed under the Space Settlement Design Contest for School Students. Futuristic, imaginative and original, it captured the attention of renowned scientists who evaluated this work along with 400 others from different parts of the world.

Aman Patnaik, Abhishek Mahapatra, Sai Krishanth P.M., Nitish Mohanty, Satwik Gadnayak, and Saurik Mishra worked relentlessly for over 12 weeks with Mr. Mathur at the helm. A team surcharged with an abundance of ideas, enthusiasm, and keenness to give their very best, there was no looking back for them.

For them it is only befitting that they go to Los Angeles, USA as delegates to the International Space Development Conference in the month of May, 2014.

Founder, KIIT and KISS Dr. Achyuta Samanta and Chairperson of the School, Dr. Mona Lisa Bal congratulated the team on their endeavor.
