Astronomy School

Congratulations to Leah Albrow has been awarded a place on the Elaine P. Snowden Astronomy School 2019.

The applications were incredibly competitive and Leah has been chosen as one of only 20 year 13 students from across the whole of Aotearoa.

Students will have the opportunity to contemplate the universe from UC’s Mount John Observatory in Tekapo for two nights and get a taste of university life on the university’s Ilam campus in Christchurch for three days. 

These days coincide with the New Zealand Institute of Physics bi-annual conference so there is an opportunity for students to listen in on some interesting talks and meet those in the field.
