Please complete this short application to participate in your capstone seminar. The grant funds most capstone expenses at all hub institutions; so your meals and activities should be covered. Some capstones last for one -day and some for more than one, so pay attention to the dates as you sign up!
Anyone without a local Hub sponsored capstone is welcome to come to the WVU capstone.
Once you are at WVU, there is no cost to students, teachers, or chaperones. We do not have a travel budget for capstone, but if that is the only thing preventing you or your club from participating, email Sue Ann at
sheather -at-nrao.edu , and we will see if we can subsidize your travel by some amount.
Mark your calendars! PSC Camp, is held each summer at the Green Bank Observatory, and includes a mixture of active high school PSC students and teachers, undergraduate mentors, and pulsar astronomers! The 2017 dates have been set: July 10-17, 2017.
Mentors should plan to arrive the evening of the 8th.
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!
