students in a classroom and joins the virtual link from the school itself. This is
recommended as a teacher may also join and help the students with any
query. (2) The student can join the link for a session from home using parent’s
mobile phone. This is recommended to school with less than 15 enrollments
and for schools who don’t want to spare their resources and teacher. The
student to teacher ratio for online classes shall be 1:50. Students from other
schools also may join the same link.

rocketry draws parallel from live rocketry as the core principle remains same,
there may be failures as well, which will again be analysed and explained to
students.
