We are busy making preparations for a great PSC Camp this summer! Mentors will arrive this weekend, and teachers and students will arrive on July 10. Can’t wait to see everyone.
We’ll post some interesting tidbits here as the week goes on, so that you can all participate a little bit even if you can’t be here. Look for a “zoom” link to appear in your email and join us remotely when you can!
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!
