Third National Astronomy Olympiad 2016 Closed Camp in August!

We are pleased to announce our Third National Astronomy Olympiad 2016 (NAO2016) Closed Camp during August 21-31, 2016! The closed camp will select the top five students as the winners of NAO2016!

Twenty-one students who managed to perform their best during our rigorous evaluation process such as selection exam, interviews and pre-closed camp will be a part of our closed camp session this year. Want to know those twenty-one students? Here you go:
Selected students represent eleven schools including seven schools in Kathmandu Valley, two schools in Chitwan and two schools in Kaski. 

During the closed camp, students will get first hand experience on working with astrophysical theories, problems and their solution. They will also learn data analysis and night sky observation techniques. 

This year, the practical sessions of the closed camp will be held at Everest Science Center Nepal (ESCN) located in near Biratnagar, Nepal. We beleive, it will help our students understand the current status of scienc and technology status and trend in the coutry. ESCN is the only science center in function at the moment which was established in 2001.

The National Astronomy Olympiad Program is a national educational program designed by Nepal Astronomical Society (NASO) and ESPRO Foundation to encourage Nepalese students who pursue further studies in Physics, Maths, Astronomy & Space Science.
