Inspired by the television launch of the recent Chandrayaan-2 and the women scientists and their team members, a nine-year-old girl from Nagpur Siya Narale developed a rocket simulation app for children. A student of Tip Top Convent, Narale developed the app to teach kids about the kinds of rockets Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) builds, assembles at a space hangar, launches and lands on the moon.
What’s even more interesting is that Narale learnt the coding from White Hat Jr.’s online learning programme that teaches kids coding. Narale through her app has ensured kids get to play around with the various parts of the rockets. Kids can study the individual parts separately and assemble them in the right order like in a game through the app.
