EST Contest for Schools

The European Solar Telescope (EST) project consortium is holding an international contest for secondary schools called “The Sun at a glance”. Students from all over Europe are invited to research different subjects related to our star and help us build the EST Solarpedia, an open educational resource about the Sun.
Participants are expected to design an infographic where the Sun is the protagonist.
There will be three prizes:
  • The teams producing the two best designs, together with their teachers, will win a trip to Tenerife (Canary Islands, Spain) to visit Teide Observatory and the European solar telescopes in operation there.
  • The third prize will be an H-alpha solar telescope. It will remain the property of the school.
