Due to the extraordinary results that the students received at the International Olympiad of Astronomy and Astrophysics last year, in 2016 Romania got qualified with two teams. The first team is sponsored by the Government of Romania and the students that form the second team need to bear the costs for transport and accommodation in order to participate.
Dragoiu Raul-Ioan, student in the 11th grade at the National College “Samuel von Brukenthal”, in Sibiu, is also part of the second team. Since the Humanitarian Association Alexandra Nanu – AUAN – offers support for school performance, answered affirmatively and sponsored Raul with the amount of 2.000 lei.
The Olympiad takes place in India in December 2016, for a period of 10 days.
