High school students across the country are invited to participate in a series of free online workshops in April.
The Saturday Science Series will explore the science behind the current South Pole Telescope (SPT), and the new CMB-S4 Experiment, which is a cosmological research project that uses 21 telescopes to survey the microwave sky over a seven-year period with the goal of unlocking secrets in cosmology, fundamental physics, astrophysics and astronomy.
This online program offers students the opportunity to directly engage with the scientists working on the SPT and CMB-S4 research projects. Students will also learn about careers in cosmology, astrophysics, and astronomy.
One of the CMB-S4 scientists is Irvine resident and UCI Astrophysics professor, Dr. Kev Abazajian.
The program will be held via Zoom every Saturday morning in April from 8-10am, and participating students will receive a certificate of completion.
