THE ROYAL ASTRONOMICAL SOCIETY OF NEW ZEALAND SECONDARY SCHOOL COMPETITION

The Royal Astronomical Society of New Zealand (RASNZ) is promoting astronomy for NZ high school students who have an interest and passion for this science. In 2018 the Society is holding its annual conference in Christchurch from Friday 4th to Sunday 6th May. The normal conference registration for non-RASNZ members is around $200, however the Society is waiving this cost for up to ten (10) young astronomers who are keen to attend and find out more about our science. In addition, the cost of the Saturday night banquet, travel costs to/from the conference and accommodation (usually backpacker) for the Friday and Saturday nights are paid for.
Astronomers from throughout New Zealand and some from overseas will participate in this year’s conference. Many of these will be amateur astronomers. RASNZ is pleased that amateurs in New Zealand contribute so much to the strength of the Society – together with a core of professionals, mainly in our universities.
To find out more information, please see Kathryn Jenkin – jenkink@wsc.school.nz
