Young stargazers explore new horizons in Astronomy

The annual Elaine P. Snowden Astronomy School (formerly The Aurora School) was held between 13-17 April this year, 20 “Space Legends” were selected from across New Zealand based on academic results in maths and physics, and their interest in astronomy. The school exists due to a passionate donor who aims to grow the love for astronomy and astrophysics and by funding the whole programme, ensures there are no financial constraints on the applicants.

Have a look at some of the activities students were involved in for the week.
