Spotlight on Elliot Coupe

​Elliot Coupe at work on his online Senior Astronom​y course.

Elliot Coupe is a current high achieving Yr 11 student at Cairns State High School studying Senior Astronomy online.  He plans to continue studying Senior Astrophysics online during 2014.  Elliot has aspirations of studying engineering and astrophysics at university and would someday like to work in this field as a professional astronomer with an engineering background.

 "The school of Astronomy and Astrophysics is really fantastic. It's opened my eyes to brilliant concepts that I couldn't have dreamed of seeing anywhere else other than university, and I haven't even begun to study the Astrophysics course yet! Personally I've always been interested in Astronomy; but the layout of this course has probed my curiosity further.  The online style allows for a 'work at your own rate', which is great because you're not smothered by information and turned off by the topic (How I feel with almost all of my school based subjects).

In the past few weeks I've come to realise the true value of this course; It's drastically helped me with my other three mathematics based subjects (Math B/C, Physics and from some parts Chemistry) and it will definitely broaden my horizon for the future as.  I totally recommend these courses to others that have an interest in science and are serious about strengthening their mathematical skills”.
