International students enjoyed interesting scientific tour



CTIO is part of NOAO (National Observatory of Optical Astronomy of the United States), operated by AURA (Association of Universities of Research in Astronomy) under a cooperation agreement with the National Science Foundation

The visit, organized by the International Office, was very interesting for the students, as well as didactic and formative, where they could find out, for example, that Chile is one of the few countries that has skies and privileged conditions to practice astronomy.

According to Alejandra Meneses, Coordinator of the International Office Coquimbo Headquarters, it is of interest to the UCN to offer this type of activities to international students, since it allows them to imbue part of the culture of our country, and especially of our region.
