Deadline 4th November
“The BAAO (BPhO) is running an online competition on Astronomy for schools for students from Year 9 -11. A cross between pub quiz and a small amount of knowledge of the night sky, it is intended to get students looking at the sky and to build upon some of the astronomy knowledge they have from earlier years. It is not an exam, but encourages students to think and to discuss ideas once it is over. The online platform is open for three weeks, and was successful last year when run for the first time. Results are not displayed to students and they can have a go at a national competition without feeling that they are going to be exposed.
The (British Astronomy and Astrophysics Olympiad) have expanded the 2020 entry to cover years 9 and years 11 this year.
