Lots of interest in ISE competition during launch in Portugal
The launch of the ISE competition ‘Playing with Light’ took place during the Global Astronomy Education meeting organised by the Global Hands-on Universe in Estoril, Portugal on 10 September. Sally Reynolds from ATiT launched the competition together with Rosa Doran, organizer of the conference as well as being an ISE partner and member of the ISE competition task-force. Sally presented the competition to an audience which included Portuguese teachers and science education activities as well as a host of interested parties from all over the world. This included Sze-leung Cheung from the UAU/NAOJ, one of the supporting organisations of the International year of Light. There was a lot of interest in the competition and at the same time Sally organized a draw for a voucher which was won by Paulo S. Bretones, from the DME/UFSCar/IAY Commission in Brazil.
