The event ‘ZoNASA’ is held every year by NASA to test the skills of architecture students. Besides the architectural skills and academic knowledge, the cultural talent in the students is also tested during the event. This is a competition where no prior preparations can help the competing students. Winning of these trophies is only possible through regular training and hard work. The objective here is to provide students from varied cultural backgrounds a common platform for interaction, learning and to share their knowledge.
