Asteroid Day takes place annually on June 30. It is a global awareness campaign where people from around the world come together to learn about asteroids, the impact hazard they may pose, and what we can do to protect our planet, families, communities, and future generations from future asteroid impacts. Asteroid Day is held each year on the anniversary of the largest impact in recent history, the 1908 Tunguska event in Siberia.
Universe In The School is announcing an Online Quiz Competition to celebrate Asteroid Day on
10th July 2019 on the topic “Space Rocks” for classes VI to VIII. This Contest will provide a platform to the students, to explore Astronomy and Space Sciences using contemporary methods and technology.

looking up information, and communicating with friends. These competitions help in scientific,
comprehensive and cognitive abilities of young minds
Students can join us live on SPACE India Facebook page at 5 P.M on 10 th July, 2019.
