Orissa girl's project adjudged best by NASA

Rourkela: A project on satellites, submitted by a school student here has been selected as the best by the United States' National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). The project by Prateeksha Das of Class XII in the Ispat English Medium School, run by the Rourkela Steel Plant, won a prize of $2,000. She has been selected for the prestigious Bruce M—Clark Memorial award. She has been invited to make a presentation at the International Space Development Conference in Chicago from May 27 to 31. Her project was on water, oxygen, creation of gravitational force and temperature control in space.

“I was expecting appreciation, but did not hope for global recognition,” she said adding “I am thrilled and excited. I hope, I will be able to make a good impression in Chicago.”

Ms. Das' father is an AGM in the steel plant and her mother is a school teacher. — PTI
