Institute of Space Technology has planned for organizing various events and activities during October 4-7 to celebrate World Space Week.
In 1999, the United Nations General Assembly declared 4-10 October as World Space Week (WSW). Each year, the World Space Week Association selects a theme for the World Space Week to provide a focus of the activities and events throughout the world. The theme for WSW 2017 is “Exploring New Worlds in Space”.
An interactive session regarding World Space Week-2017 was organized at Institute of Space Technology, Islamabad on September 12, 2017. A total of 30 faculty representatives from 30 different educational institutions of twin cities participated in this forum. The basic aim of this forum was to introduce the concept of ‘Space Ambassadors’ at various educational institutions, who were guided about different events and activities of World Space Week-2017 at IST.
