Registration Deadline extended! Plus Astronomy workshops, Venus Transit, and more!

The deadline for registration of AstroChallenge 2012 has been extended to 15th May 2012.

Don’t hesitate any further, register now at http://www.astrochallenge.org/registration.php!

This year, on top of the thrilling and intellectually challenging competition, participants can look forward to joining a range of concurrent events:

1) To better prepare participants who are new to astronomy, Woodlands YEC Astronomical Society will be working in collaboration with the AstroChallenge committee to offer educational workshops covering a range of topics relevant to the competition. Our Quiz Masters will be teaching at the workshops.

In addition, some papers from past AstroChallenge competitions have been uploaded under the Information tab for participants’ reference. Do note that prior to AstroChallenge 2011, competition papers were not standardized, and may not reflect the true academic requirement of AstroChallenge 2012. Please use them at your own risk.

2) To celebrate the extremely rare Transit of Venus – indeed, the last of our generation – NUS Faculty of Science will be organizing a range of fun and educational activities, to be held on the 5th and 6th of June. Participants can look forward to joining public lectures, astrophotography exhibition, music performances, and public observation session. More information can be found at the event’s website.

Please register early for these events to avoid disappointment. For enquiries, don’t hesitate to contact us at astrochallenge@gmail.com.

Thank you for your interest in AstroChallenge 2012, and we look forward to seeing you at NUS on the 5th of June!
