"Challenge Under the Stars", which aims to encourage families to learn about astronomy by participating in fun and educational challenges. The contest, open to all, will take place from 2 July through the end of August, across California and the US.
Each week participants will be able to view the video capsule on a space-related theme. The challenges will call upon the star gazers' skills by asking them to draw a picture, solve a puzzle or test their memory by answering questions. Participants have a chance to win over $5,000 in prizes, including telescopes and binoculars to further their new passion.
