It all started when…

Our Founder CEO, Dr. Srimathy Kesan, was a proud homemaker who used to organise events and philanthropic campaigns, she has always been socially active in the important fields of the society such as education, performing arts, culture and sciences for the younger generations. 
After a 16-year sabbatical post her wedding, she started this organisation by herself in a miniature scale from her own backyard with the primary objective to explore and enhance the Space enthusiasm of children in India. Bearing that in mind, she founded a Scientific educational tourism company to provide the opportunity of Space experiential learning to Indian School Children at International Space Institutions and Organizations. In January 2016, our Founder, Dr. Srimathy Kesan legally documented a Partnership firm and channelised the company into designing, building and launching Satellites exclusively by High School and College Students predominantly from the Tier two and Tier three towns of India thus, ‘Space Kidz India’ moved on to becoming an Aerospace Startup organisation designing and building Satellites, the 1st of its kind in India.
