Brazilian Astronomy and Astronautics Olympiad

The sky’s the limit – or is it?


Students at School of the Nations earned stellar results in the most recent Brazilian Astronomy and Astronautics Olympiad. Twenty-eight of our students in Grades 1 to 12 took part in the 2020 Olympiad, and thirteen earned medals!


Every year since 1998, the Brazilian Astronomical Society organizes and promotes the Astronomy and Astronautics Olympiad. In 2020, over 437,000 students in Grades 1 through 12 throughout Brazil participated.


Students took the exam online on November 12 and 13 answering ten questions – seven about astronomy and three related to astronautics. Most questions were multiple choice.


We congratulate all who participated in the 2020 Brazilian Astronomy and Astronautics Olympiad. We also send a shout-out to our thirteen medalists.
