Active PSC Members (teachers and students) who successfully pass  data analysis tests 1 and 2, AND analyze 20 sets of plots  (called pointings) are eligible to attend a Capstone Seminar at  your Hub institution.  If you do not have an active Hub near you, then you are welcome to join us at the West Virginia University Capstone!

During Capstone you will:

  • share the work that you have done analyzing plots with your peers and other scientists.
  • Meet faculty, including pulsar astronomers of course!
  • Learn about STEM majors by touring Science and engineering labs,
  • Participate in fun hands-on activities
  • Experience Campus life
  • Hang-out, and make new friends!

Capstone is awesome!  More on this exciting opportunity– dates etc, as we receive them from our hubs!

  1. Jupiter High has worked through test 1 & 2 however, we are not sure where to find the 20 sets of data points to complete the data to apply for the West Virginia summer class. Please help. I have 2 students that are really interested in attending. Mary Swigert, Jupiter High

  2. Dear Jupiter High school,

    In order to start analyzing data, the students must login to the Database, which is located under the "database tab". The login information should be the same as the Pulsar Search Collaboratory. The data is divided into sets, each set containing 26 plots of pulsar data. I hope this answered your question.
