The fair will open at 11am with numerous schools, colleges and universities taking part in it. A space exhibition will also be held. The event will feature competitions related to water rockets, and robotics and zero-gravity experiments. According to SUPARCO representatives, the fair is being organised in light of World Space Week 2019. The theme for World Space Week 2019 is ‘The Moon: Gateway to the Stars’. World Space Week is observed across the globe to spread awareness on utilising space science for the development of the human race and space science technology.
