What parents had to say about our previous programs
Obuli Chandran really ur bunch of Young Astronomers batch is proving awesome. They all r superb. Hats off to u to give them this much knowledge in a span of 6 months. Tku again Obuli Chandran and mango education for this wonderful opportunity with Mithun Meenakshi Mohan
I and my son Indraneel had a very informativ
We are so thankful to Mango education and team. Our son learned a lot about astronomy. Especially the way of teaching by Obuli Chandran had ignited a spark towards astronomy among the children. They are going to glow like stars in the future for sure. Thanks again!
Astronomy compels the soul to look upwards and leads us from this world to another.
