Basudev Bhoi, a honest student at his school in Baral village, 42 Mouja district, was initially recognised by his professors for his interest in scientific experiments. They recommended him to join one of the Young Thinker Educational Foundation’s centres in Baral in order to nurture his talent.
Basudev has long been involved with the center’s young scientists and researchers. He has helped them with various initiatives including space, robotics, and other technologies. Finally, he was chosen to take part in the NASA challenge.
Basudev is one of six kids from Odisha chosen by the Foundation for the NASA competition. He will present his project at NASA’s Robot Challenge 2023. He prepared the project under the guidance of the Foundation’s young scientist Anil Pradhan.
“Space and robots have been my main interests in science projects in school,” Basudev told the media about his selection. Due to the Foundation, I have been able to give shape to my talent in its laboratory. “I am delighted to have been chosen for the NASA challenge squad.”
“Basudev has been associated with our centre at Baral village for the last 7 years,” Anil, who coached a team of 10 children and assisted them in participating in the NASA space challenge in 2021, said. He is one of our team members who will compete in the NASA challenge. He is a dedicated student who is enthusiastic about science projects. We could see he had an innate talent for scientific creativity, which is why we chose him to display his talent on an international stage.”
Basudev’s father expressed delight in his son’s ability to present his project at NASA. “Since I am a day employee, I could not afford sending him to private school. “But, by his own efforts and determination, he has been given the opportunity to demonstrate his potential,” he stated.
