Another Astrofest by Khwarizmi Science Society

Umair Asim surrounded by ladies at an Astrofest

Khwarizmi Science Society (KSS) has done a phenomenal job this year of bringing astronomy to students, adults, children in many parts of Pakistan. Please see my earlier posts on their astronomy events here and here (especially the pictures in there). Their latest Falakyati Mela (Astrofest) was held on Sept 30th at Government Higher Secondary School at Shahdara and they again got an unbelievable turn out! This time they also held a quiz competition and poetry reading about astronomy. Please see a longer report on Umair Asim's blog. Congratulations to KSS on doing a fantastic job in celebrating the International Year of Astronomy in Pakistan!

Great Job KSS. It is good to see astronomy related activities...something that had been quite unheard of in Pakistan.
