Astrigue 2009 comprises of two events. There will be a one-day learning camp (Astrigue Convention 2009) on 4th April 2009 held at Hwa Chong Institution (HCI) and a two-day inter-school astronomy competition (Astrigue Challenge 2009) held over 2 Saturdays on the 18th  and 25th  April 2009 at Hwa Chong Institution on Day 1 and Raffles Institution (Junior College) on Day 2 of the competition.

Various activities have been designed to expose participating students to exciting ideas in astronomy and space science. Your school is invited to send up to a maximum of 20 participants for Astrigue Convention, and 4 teams each comprising of 4 members and 1 reserve for Astrigue Challenge *. As the Convention is designed to help prepare participants for the Challenge, you are strongly encouraged to send the same students for both Convention and Challenge.

The download for the invitation letter and the 2nd letter to schools haves been removed due to a request from Ming Yang.


Updates: Congratulations to RI on being the Team Champion! In order of merit, the other winners are RGS, NUSHS and BPGHS.
