The students of the school will be involved in a programme of developing 75 satellites as part of the 75th Independence Day celebrations which will be held next year. Designing and making the satellite will be done at the school by involving students of a few other government schools

Indian Technology Congress Association (ITCA) and space agency ISRO will be helping the school's students in building and launching the satellites. The ITCA initiative will involve student groups from all across India to prepare 75 nano or small satellites, which can be launched in orbit. Students will be provided an opportunity to use ISRO’s launch pad or others from across the world.

The initiative is said to have been inspired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s idea of Gaganyaan Space Mission.

As per media reports, ITCA has signed an MoU with Israel schools and government to collaborate with Indian institutions. These student satellites can be used for monitoring the environment, relay communication etc.

Founded in 2012, Indian Technology Congress (ITC) over the last 15 years attained international prominence as a unique platform fostering Industry-Academia-Research Labs-Policy Makers’ collaboration with the objective of capacity-building for global technological progress.

In ITC-2017, a resolution was unanimously adopted in the Bangalore Declaration that Technology Professionals from the industry, R&D Laboratories, and Academic Institutions should collaborate and 'institutionalize' the synergy by establishing the Indian Technology Congress Association (ITCA).
