SUMMER 2021 DATES:
June 28 – July 16, 2021
Dana Hall/Longwood – Wellesley/Boston, MA
Students will learn about and explore SETI signals, using data streaming online to search for radio signals in space that may originate from extraterrestrial intelligence. They will use data streaming in from Pluto from the Bright Horizons project. Cassini, a satellite orbiting Venus, streams data that students can analyze on their own computers. Students will learn about stellar nurseries that create new galaxies. They will explore how wobbling in the light streaming in from distant stars may indicate the existence of orbiting planets. This data will be explored against a backdrop of lectures on astrophysics and a field trip to a local observatory.
‘The program was an amazing experience. My teachers were very knowledgeable and taught me so much. For someone who wants to pursue theoretical astrophysics in the future, I could not have found a better summer program. It only made my love for physics greater, and it was exactly what I was looking for…We were also given the opportunity to see the CFA at Harvard, which was a trip I will never forget. Hopefully I will end up there myself one day!’
‘It was awesome, the teachers are awesome! I also feel privileged that Vincent brought Alex in.’
‘I love how knowledgeable our teachers are. They always answered all of our questions and do their best to make sure everyone understands the material.’
