AstroCon17 - Oct 8 to 13

Each year TSAA endeavours to give its students the opportunity to network with professional astronomers and university staff.  

"AstroCon17" is hosted by UQ, QUT, USQ, Brisbane Planetarium  during week 2 of term 4, 2017. 
Due to physical limitations on the activities & projects that are overseen by astronomers, only 10 places can be made available.   The earliest response possible to register is advisable to secure a place.
The group will meet on Sunday evening at Brisbane City YHA (specialised accommodation for high-school students).  Accommodation and a Evening Lecture Room has been booked at YHA from Sunday 8th to Friday 13th October.  

On Wednesday & Thursday nights the group will use the Brisbane Planetarium Observatory to study Double Stars.  TSAA has hired a mini-bus for transport throughout the week.  We ensure both male and female adult supervisors are with the students at all times.   
The cost per student to attend is $950 (includes airfares) or $550 if joining in Brisbane.  This cost includes all accommodation, meals, entrance fees and transport.
