More information about the Astronomy Crash Couse will be released in the upcoming information letter and nearer to Day 0.

If you have any queries with regards to the Astronomy Crash Course above, kindly direct them to astrochallenge@gmail.com and we will respond to you as soon as we can. Furthermore, do keep a lookout on our facebook page for more updates on information pertaining to AC2018.
