About Space Innovation Challege :

The launch of Chandrayaan-2 has inspired many young minds and has instilled curiosity amongst them to learn and explore the subject of space research. Thus to maintain such idiosyncrasy, we aim to organize a Space Innovation Challenge for the first time in AXIS’20 (The annual technical festival of VNIT). The aim of this event is to provide a platform for young minds from all over India to showcase their vision for space research.

As India is making progress in space research and development, the main aim of this challenge is to spark curiosity among young minds and help them initiate and invent and carry on their endeavours in space research.
