As part of our Ancient Astronomy season at the EOCCC, we are running a competition which is open to schools and homeschoolers, in Oxfordshire and beyond. The competition involves creating an orrery - it can be based on either ancient Greek or modern models and can be any size and made out of any material.
There are two categories - under 18s and under 12s - there will be a winner and runner-up selected in both categories. The entries will be judged by Professor Steven Balbus - Head of Astrophysics, Savilian Professor of Astronomy, University of Oxford.
The deadline for entries is . You can bring your entry to the EOCCC by leaving it at Cheney School reception, clearly labelled with your name and contact details, or arranging a time to drop it off with us in person if you prefer. Please get in touch with any questions on firstname.lastname@example.org
Results will be announced in March.
