As promised, the AC Project Round Brief can be found here.
All schools participating in the Senior Observation Round will have to inform the Quizmasters of the following details on Day 1:
The deadline for this declaration will be 1330 hours on Day 1 (before the start of the DRQ Round). All non-electronic reference materials will be submitted for review during declaration. Electronic reference materials (e.g. Stellarium on laptops) do NOT need to be submitted for review, but they need to be declared to the Quizmasters.
Approved reference materials will be returned during the Observation Round. Non-approved references will only be returned after the Observation Round ends.
Finally, as the Observation Round is meant to mimic an actual observation session, teams are encouraged to bring items that are typically used in observation sessions (e.g. red torch lights, trash bags/rain covers in case of wet weather, mats etc.)
The AC Information Letter (and associated information about the Project Round) may be found here. Do note that the registration deadline has been extended by 1 week (to 23rd May), and the Observation Round has undergone a major revamp this year. For more information about the Observation Round, please read our briefing here.
