AstroFest 2009

3rd AstroFest 2009

The ACJC Astronomy Society will be organising AstroFest 2009. We cordially invite your school to participate in this event, which will be held on the following two days:

23 May 2009 (Sat) from 1pm – 6pm (Registration starts at 1pm in ACJC lobby)
30 May 2009 (Sat) from 1pm – 10pm

This is an annual event aimed at bringing together Astronomy enthusiasts from various institutions to share their experiences and learn from each other, and fostering ties between the various schools. After last year’s success, we hope for your school’s continued support.

The teams will go through a two-day event where they will be immersed in enriching activities for them to learn Astronomy while getting to know others from the community. An Astronomy fair displaying projects done by the teams will follow in the afternoon of the second day, which will undergo judging by professionals. In the evening, after the final round, participants would be shuttled by bus to Singapore Science Centre for a casual stargazing session.

The programme includes the following:

• Astronomy Fair and Contest
• Mind Games
• Dinner Reception on Second Day
• Astronomy Sharing by experienced astronomers
• Stargazing

We cordially invite your school to send teams of 3 or less students to participate in this event. You may send a maximum of 3 teams (9 students).

A registration fee of $65 will be charged for each team, which includes AstroFest T-shirts and dinner reception for all participants. All payment is to be made by IFAAS or cheque payable to “Anglo-Chinese Junior College” by 23 May 2009. Registration of teams closes on 4 April 2009. Please reply early to facilitate our planning for the event. Thank you.

Participants should wear their school uniforms (if applicable) and bring along attire for physical activities. They may change into their AstroFest T-shirts during the event.

Dear All,

Anglo-Chinese Junior College Astronomy Society is proud to present to you AstroFest 2009. This year's AstroFest would be held on the 23rd and 30th May 2009, both Saturdays, in the college premises.

AstroFest is an annual event aimed at bringing together Astronomy enthusiasts from various institutions to share their experiences, learn from each other, and foster ties between the various schools. After last year's encouraging response, we hope to attract even more teams from the various schools to participate this year.

On the first day, the teams will go through a day camp where they will be immersed in enriching activities for them to learn Astronomy while getting to know others from the community. On the second day, an Astronomy Fair exhibiting projects done by the teams would be held and will undergo judging by professionals. The finals would be held after that and the winning teams will walk away with attractive prices. In the evening, participants would be brought over to the Singapore Science Centre to end off the event with an exciting stargazing session.

This year, we hope to give away even more attractive prizes. So teams taking part, give your best shot!
