Welcome to the UniSat universe!
Dear girls, “UniSat – Launch your dreams” program invites you to a new international project.
UniSat participants will open the doors to some of the world’s most advanced technological universities. You will be in the same team with professors and engineers from NASA, the Russian Space Research Agency, scientists from Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan.
Unisat is a unique opportunity for girls in Uzbekistan to find their way, change their lives and try to work on science and advanced technologies.
What is the UniSat program?
UniSat is a joint program of UNICEF Uzbekistan, Tech4impact NGO and the Ministry of Innovative Development of the Republic of Uzbekistan.
