XLAB 2016 Science Camp

Date : 15-21 August, 2016

Location: Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research, Göttingen, Germany


Every year the XLAB hosts a science camp for distinguished high school students from all around the world. I have taken part in organizing the Astromomy camp week.

I have presented an introductory lecture on Solar Physics and basics of how to use Spectroscopy to infer properties of stars and their atmospheres.

In addition, I have also organized a couple of laboratory sessions for experiments on Spectroscopy. After that, the students were given the opportunity to work on reduced Sunrise data and make a small statistical study on the properties of solar granulation and bright points.
