Astrigue is an annual Astronomy outreach programme, comprising a convention and a competition, hosted by Raffles Institution (Junior College) and Hwa Chong Institution. This programme is targeted at lower and upper secondary school students, and is aimed at spreading an appreciation and passion for Astronomy in Singapore. This event has been enjoying success and enthusiasm since its nascence in 2006.
Astrigue 2010 comprises two separate events:
Astrigue Convention 2010: A one-day Astronomy camp held in the Hwa Chong Institution campus on Saturday, the 3rd of April 2010.
Astrigue Challenge 2010: An Astronomy competition held in both the Hwa Chong Institution and Raffles Institution (Junior College) campuses over two Saturdays: 10th and 17th of April 2010.
There are two categories for the Astrigue Challenge: Normal and Newcomer. The Newcomer category is for students who have just been introduced to Astronomy and/or Astrigue. Lower secondary students and/or schools that have never taken part in Astrigue before are encouraged to sign up for this category.
Each school is allowed to send a maximum of 20 people for the Astrigue Convention and 2 teams of 4+1 reserve for each category (Newcomer and Normal) of the Astrigue Challenge.
