MOVIE SCREENING – OCTOBER SKY

On 22nd July, the movie club had the screening of an American biographical movie ‘October Sky’ at the auditorium of St. Kabir Institute of Professional Studies. It is based on the true story of Homer H. Hickam Jr, a coal miner’s son who was inspired by the launch of Sputnik 1 in 1957 to take up rocketry against his father’s wishes and eventually became a NASA engineer. The students of Semester 1 attended it and also had a discussion in which they mapped the events of the movie. In the discussion they also pointed out how the movie is a significant watch from the managerial perspective. Such informal gatherings give them a chance to not only brainstorm ideas but also improve their interaction skills. It was thoroughly enjoyed by the students.
