After School Program
Stars - Science Research Course
February 23, 2015 - April 1, 2015
What is a star and how does it produce light? What types of stars are there and do they all go supernova? This class will introduce you to the variety of stars out there, from white dwarves to red giants, and G-type stars like our Sun to recently discovered brown dwarves that are changing our thoughts on what a star even is. You will learn about the stages in the lives of stars, from birth in a cluster out of a stellar nursery, to death in one of many possible forms. The course is offered free-of-charge.
This course is a pre-requisite for the Museum’s Science Research Mentoring Program (SRMP) in the astrophysics, and earth and planetary science track.
The course is offered free-of-charge.
