Story

Hello! My name is Zubin Mehra, I am a 10th grade student from The Doon School, Dehradun. In early 2022, I founded Star Bright, a physics and astrophysics education initiative in collaboration with Nirmal Primary School, in order to share my passion for astronomy in a way that changes the way kids understand the study of the subject!

I had two aims in mind with this: the first is to share my passion for a topic that is important to me. And secondly, to create innovative, cost-effective, and culturally significant methods that go beyond the normal classroom physics curriculum.

This field of study necessitates the use of methods and equipment that allow us to make observations and examine scientific concepts in action; only then can one obtain a thorough understanding of the subject. Most children do not have access to this activity since it is costly and cumbersome to put together without additional effort. However, studying physics and astrophysics broadens our understanding of how the universe's rules operate. They enable us to explore worlds beyond our own, to comprehend the complexity of time and space, which may lead to tremendous discoveries and advancements for a nation.

As a result, I am seeking funds to build a StarLab at Nirmal Primary School. In order to broaden the learning options for the children at the school, I intend to contribute astronomy lab equipment such as a telescope and eyepieces, a mount, a refractor, star charts, flashlights, binoculars, and a tripod.
In addition, I will be organising frequent stargazing sessions for the students to become acquainted with the subject.

All the money raised will go directly towards this creation of the StarLab! Please do contribute, share, and help us give kids a wonderful, interactive, and practical education!
