12th International Olympiad on Astronomy and Astrophysics (IOAA) in Beijing

Posted on

Following on from the talk that Charles Barclay FRAS (far-right in picture) gave at the FAS 2018 AGM & Convention in York we can report that the UK team has returned from the 10 day long 12th International Olympiad on Astronomy and Astrophysics (IOAA) in Beijing having won 2 Silver medals and 2 Honourable Mentions. The competition was particularly tough (one 5 hour theory paper, one 5 hour Data-Analysis and a one hour Observational paper) and we are delighted with the result from this young team of five 17 year olds (two from state school and 3 independent school) led by Charles and Dr Alex Calverley FRAS.
