ISRO agrees to provide assistance for satellite TV classrooms
To bridge the learning gap due to COVID-induced lockdown, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has given its nod to the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Education to provide technical assistance for satellite TV classrooms in the country.
ISRO scientists said the organisation is ready to provide satellite rights to states to start satellite TV classrooms.
They have left the option to the respective states to choose whether they are willing to use the technology.
ISRO scientists appeared before the Parliamentary Standing Committee for Education on Friday and made a detailed presentation about the proposed satellite TV classroom for students. Education secretaries and senior officials of five states including Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Maharashtra, Telangana and Arunachal Pradesh also attended the panel meeting.
