|Mission||To impart cosmic awareness, develop Scientific Temper and trigger the spirit of Inquiry among the children of our Nation.|
Equinox was formed in April 2003 with the sole purpose of propagating the science of Astronomy.
Equinox conducts planetarium shows for schools within the school itself. This is made possible with the help of our State-of-the-art PORTABLE PLANETARIUM SYSTEM
The core activity of the organization is to conduct ASTRONOMY and SCIENCE related educational programs for schools.
The shows are INTERACTIVE, an experienced seasoned Astronomer takes the students through the shows in an interactive manner befitting the age and knowledge of participating audience.
Equipped with a wide array of projections, Equinox shows create a unique learning environment for virtually every level of education. Accuracy and precision is the hallmark of the Planetarium.
