The astronomy club exposes the students to the scientific study of celestial objects such as stars, planets, comets, galaxies and phenomena that originate outside the Earth's atmosphere such as the cosmic background radiation. It contributes to technology, economy and society by constantly pushing for instruments, processes and software that are beyond our current capabilities. It proves to be the building block, to kindle passion and interest amongst students. Providing proper resources and information to the curious minds is the stepping stone in the making of future astronomers and scientists. Students enjoy this time to learn and explore things. The club encourages them to learn, explore and to know more about the celestial objects. The hands-on activities and observation sessions, makes it popular amongst the students.
