Arkita Baruah, a student of class 11 of Basava International School, Dwarka, was one of the chosen ones to be a member of the Indian delegation of the prestigious SAKURA Science High School Programme, Japan (Jointly organised by JST and DST).

The selection was a part of her reward for winning the top position for Delhi at the national level of INSPIRE project organized by the Ministry of Science and Technology.

The exchange gave her the opportunity to interact with eminent personalities like the former astronaut Dr. Mamoru Mori at Miraikan (National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation). The programme also included an experiment on EL polymer device conducted by the Nobel Laureate, Prof. Hideki Shirakawa. The Indian delegation was taken to the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) wherein they saw the actual working of a ground station in contact with the current spacecraft in ISS. It was a proud moment when Arkita was given an opportunity to address the dignitaries as a student ambassador representing India.
