To celebrate your hard work in the PSC, many of our hub institutions are planning to host Capstone Seminars late this spring. Capstone Seminars give you the chance to experience campus life, find out more about STEM career paths and most importantly to share your work with your peers! You will be asked to work with members of your team to prepare a presentation about your work ( this could be a poster or a short talk depending on how your hub plans its Capstone.
Here we will post dates and information on how to attend.
Qualifications: To qualify for Capstone in 2017 you must be an active PSC member. That means that you must analyze 20 sets of plots. You will gain access to data plots AFTER you pass the 2 pulsar data tests. If you are having trouble getting through these tests, we are happy to skype with your club and talk through them!
Hub Capstone Dates:
West Virginia University: May 31-June 3, 2017. This is a 2-day capstone, with 3 days lodging in a dormitory at WVU.
