Unlike our previous interaction sessions, today's morning remained busy with an interaction program with the A-Level students at Orient College, Banbsari, Kathmandu, Nepal as we got an invitation by Surgeon B.C., Coordinator, A-Level at college to host an interaction for his students. During the interaction, we explore the interest of students on astronomy and brief them about 2nd National Astronomy Olympiad Program. We are happy to see the initiative from the college authority to express their support to our works in Nepal and for the invitation to brief its students about our different programs and how they can get involved.

We are glad to see the enthusiasm of the students and looking forward to provide them guidance for their career in astronomy and astrophysics in coming days. Nepal Astronomical Society (NASO) has started National Astronomy Olympiad Program in Nepal since 2014 and successfully participated to the 8th International Olympiad on Astronomy and Astrophysics held in Romania. Ms. Sabnam Shrestha and Mr. Naushad Miya Muslim, students from the Orient College (A-Level) were two students who succeeded to secure their seat for the closed camp that was held in Kathmandu during June 1-7, 2014.
