NUS/NTU Astronomy Competition 2012

AstroChallenge is an annual astronomy competition jointly organised by the Astronomical Societies of National University of Singapore and Nanyang Technological University. The competition is targeted and specially tailored for students in Secondary Schools, Junior Colleges and Polytechnics.

Currently in its 10th year running, AstroChallenge aims to enhance students’ interest and knowledge in astronomy, and hopes to foster closer inter-school ties through the common interest of astronomy. Students will be exposed to a comprehensive array of questions that range from theoretical astronomy to practical astronomy.

AstroChallenge 2012 is supported by National University of Singapore, Nanyang Technological University; sponsored by Astrobargains; and partnered with Woodlands YEC Astronomical Society to outreach to youths.
