Eunice wins National Astronomy Quiz
2007-10-30

 

A team from Eunice Primary School won the National Astronomy Quiz last week. The team, who won the Free State leg of the competition held at the University of the Free State's Boyden Observatory, competed against five other teams from Soshanguve and Muldersdrift in Gauteng, Springbok in the Northern Cape, Khayelitsha in the Western Cape and Richards Bay in KwaZulu-Natal. The competition, held at the Hartebeeshoek Radio Observatory near Krugersdorp, is presented by the South African Agency for Science and Technology Advancement (SAASTA), an agency of the National Research Foundation (NRF). SAASTA aims to advance public awareness, appreciation and engagement of science, engineering and technology in South Africa. Staff from the UFS Boyden Observatory provided advice and assistance to the Eunice team.
