A number of multiple choice questions where teams have to simultaneously answer between four possible responses.
The quiz is run as a knock-out event. Teams of four grade 7 learners per school enter, with each participating school being allowed to field one team. Many schools run internal quizzes with teams of four learners competing to be the team that eventually represents their school in the inter-schools quiz.
The objective of this competition is to contribute to the improvement of awareness, interest, understanding, and insight into basic astronomy, as well as, build an appreciation of and pride in South Africa’s history of science activity and achievements, amongst others.
