The Malleshwaram Government Boys High School in Bengaluru is all set to become the first in the country to register its name in a unique feat. It will be India’s first government school to develop a satellite, Karnataka Deputy Chief Minister C N Ashwathnarayan said, according to reports. The Malleshwaram Government Boys High School is located in Stone Building College at the 18th cross.
In addition, students from around the nearby schools will also be included in the development of 75 ready-to-launch satellites.
“Usually, students from engineering institutes are involved in such projects. With the help of the Indian Technological Congress Association and ISRO, the designing and development of the satellites will be done at the school by involving students of a few other government schools as well,” Ashwathnarayan added.
The feat will be a part of the 75th Independence Day celebrations next year.
Enrolments in a few government schools in the Malleshwaram constituency have increased from 2221 to 2743. “Admission to government schools in Malleshwaram constituency has increased from 2,221 last year to 2,743 this year. This should be matched by achieving standards in quality teaching and learning,” Ashwathnarayan, who is the MLA of the area, added.
On being asked about the inoculation drive, the Deputy CM said that 65 percent of college students in government institutions and aided institutions were administered with one dose already. “The top officers in charge of the inoculation drive are coordinating with district commissioners and other stakeholders to achieve an optimal target as soon as possible,” he added.
