Greetings from NASO…!!
We organize the World’s biggest annual Astronomy & Space Olympiad exam for school students called National Astronomy & Space Olympiad (NASO). We are National in spirit but International in adoption with students and schools enrolling from several countries like Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, Cambodia, Myanmar, Vietnam, Brunei, Hong Kong, China, Mongolia, Bulgaria, Belgium, Oman, Qatar, Abu Dhabi, Yemen and Dubai.
We invite you and your prestigious school to register for the NASO Olympiad Exam – 2023-24 and enable your students to explore Astronomy & Space science as a subject and as a career option. Students can also gauge their performance matrix, compete with students across the globe and get a chance to be part of a very niche student community that will learn, build & launch their own satellite.
We are proud to share the list of associations and partnerships that we have established for spreading Astronomy & Space Education in India and helping become our nation the next Space Capital of the world.
