Finding the Ingredients of Other Worlds: How Spectra Tell Us What Extra-solar Planets are Made Of
October 3 | 9:30 am - 11:30 am PDT
Have high school students you know ever wondered about what solar systems around other stars are like? How astronomers find out what they are made of and why are they different from ours? If they have wondered, they’re not alone! For years scientists have been trying to answer these kinds of questions.
To provide high schoolers with the opportunity to discover the answers by experimenting with the data, please share this invitation for them come to the next, free Saturday morning online Teen Astronomy Cafés on October 3. It is entitled “Finding the Ingredients of Other Worlds” by Dr. Everett Schlawin (Steward Observatory, U. Arizona).
Please note that owing to ongoing concerns about COVID-19, our Teen Astronomy Cafés are online and not in-person until further notice. (Our in-person cafés have run for over 3 years. Since April 2020 we have been running the cafés online.)
To participate in our online Teen Astronomy Café on October 3, feel free to invite high school students to sign up here by October 1 at to reserve their spot. On Friday, October 2, we will send an email on how to connect to the October 3 café through zoom.
We hope to see them online at the Café!
