Every September since 1996, the Institute organizes a 3 to 4 day Astrophysics summer school. The school is aimed towards talented high school students attending the last two years of high-school (17-18 yrs old) with an interest in Astronomy. It attracts about ~50 students each year, selected out of the ~150 students who typically apply to participate. The summer school consists of lectures on various topics of modern Astrophysics given by NOA researchers, small hands-on group projects and observations using the 62.5cm Newall telescope as well as and other historical telescopes of NOA. The students present the results of their projects on the last day of the school and receive their certificates of participation.
