The UL Space Club began hosting a web lecture series on May 23, 2020 under the Covid-19 context. So far 50 webinars have been organized. Quizzes are also held after the webinars. A student from Switzerland was the winner of the last quiz.
The club (ulspaceclub.in) operates with the active participation of organisations such as ISRO, IIST, DRDO, BARC, TIFR, IISER, NIT, various Universities and experts from there. Members are selected from classes 8 to 12 through a common examination.
Today, the space club is a model for the country as it provides students with an opportunity to connect with the field of space science and technology. UL Space Club has become an inspiration and support for those who dream of a career in space science.
