High school students from 48 countries competed in the Olympiad, and only the top five students from each country took part.
During the week, participants solved theoretical problems, as well as applying their practical knowledge and working with a telescope.
Olita was delighted and proud to have participated in the Olympiad, and shared her thoughts with us. "In astronomy, I especially like observing the stars. A telescope allows you to gather light and look at the most distant and inconspicuous celestial bodies."
We congratulate Olita and her teacher at Exupery, Sergejs Bratarcuks.
