Rocketeers,India – Dreaming of Rocket Science in Every Classroom

Divyanshu Poddar,who quit his job with the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) Conceptualized
and launched Rocketeers in May last year as a pilot programme. However, these workshops were only
to validate the concept, explore the potential of the idea and the feasibility of the concept. Poddar is now
busy working on his next big launch.

Rocketeers Research Institute and Specific Impulse Technologies

The Institute will provide a complete parallel curriculum for students of fifth standard to post graduates to
pursue space sciences and related fields. There will be short term workshops, courses, internships,
projects, research opportunities, fellowships and diplomas on offer.

The children today live in beautiful times. Within their lifetimes, they will see not only the first human
landing on our celestial neighbor, but also our efforts to set up human habitat there. They live in a world
where space science is enabling technologies and applications never imagined before in sectors such as
agriculture, communication, data analytics, disaster management and prediction, energy, travel and
tourism and many more. Not only will the students of today see these technologies in their lifetimes but
they will be the ones driving them as we build more and more capacity to access space. They live in an
exploratory age which has arrived again after almost 400 years.

Rocketeers provide Plug and Play educational programs for students, institutions and businesses that
can be deployed without disrupting any of the normal activities of the institution or the
company.Programs and activities are enabling to create a platform providing such students with a step
by step path to become the spacecraft builders of tomorrow irrespective of their location and formal
education. Rocketeers will give students across the country the very tools they need to learn, build and
develop their abilities and skills to become rocket scientists, who will now go on to colonize Mars and
newer frontiers than ever before. India is one of the leading space faring nations of the world. As ISRO
supports more and more privatization and asks for support from the private industry, Rocketeers is
building the much-needed ecosystem that acts as the primary growth driver and talent pool for this
