DISCOVERY SCHOOL SUPER LEAGUE POWERED BY BYJU’S (DSSL) aims at bringing over 30,000+ schools on its platform, giving over 1 crore students the opportunity to be a part of a revolutionary virtual challenge and win exciting prizes. Students across the country will participate in the quiz using the DSSL app and the top teams from each state will qualify for the ‘TV round’, which will also be shot remotely.
Conceptualized at a never-before scale, DSSLwill reach out to 30,000+ schools across 29 states, targeting participation from students in the age-group of 8 to 16 years. Each participant will be able to give four preparatory tests and there is no entry fee to participate in the main school quiz either. After a rigorous selection process, the top team from each of the states will qualify for the 6-episode TV quiz show which will premiere on Discovery channel and Discovery Kids in the coming year.
The first two editions of DSSL were conducted with a mix of on-ground and digital participation and received participation from 1 crore students from over 30,000 schools. Given the on-going pandemic, BYJU’S plans on leveraging its digital expertise to create a first-of-its-kind 100% virtual challenge, allowing students from all parts of the country to test and apply their knowledge.
Commenting on this unprecedented launch, Atit Mehta, VP – Marketing, BYJU’S said, “Our new format will give students across all parts of the country a transparent and unbiased platform to compete and showcase their capabilities to the entire nation. Online learning has been breaking the glass ceiling that existed in education for years and with such an initiative we want to further ignite the passion and love for learning among children everywhere.”
The winners of the Discovery School Super League Powered by BYJU’S will win an all expense paid trip to NASA. Students will be able to participate in DSSL 2020 by downloading the app available on Android and iOS: onelink.to/3fdzvw
