Varun Kumar Verma from RPVV, Paschim Vihar and Manisha Raikawar from Sharda Sen Rajkiya Kanya Sarvodaya Vidyalaya (SSRKV) placed third and seventh in the Essay Writing Competitions (Hindi) run by ISRO Cyberspace.
While Varun Kumar Verma told Mr Sisodia that he aspires to be a scientist, Manisha Raikawar wants to be an IAS officer, according to a Delhi government statement.
“We need to organize more science events to encourage the participation of students not only from India but from all over the world,” said Sisodia, who is also the Minister of Education of Delhi. .
“We should aspire to organize such world-class events so that students from Europe, America and other countries come to India to participate in such events. The beauty of science is that it teaches us to question existing ideas and generate a new thought process. We need to encourage scientific thinking in our children, ”he said.
“For this, the Delhi government will constantly try to organize such events all over India so that children in Delhi public schools can advance the country in the field of science,” he added.
