Report on the Results:  October 02 - 10, 2020 - IUCAA SciPOP using different social media, like Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp, made the series of WSW posters to reach more than 5000 people during the whole WSW. As the series was focussed on sharing information about Indian satellites, we got a wonderful response from people across the country.
