CIERA Shares with Local Children: Solar Observing and Careers in Astrophysics

CIERA graduate students hosted two groups of gifted young people as part of the 2015 Opportunities for the Future conference offered by Northwestern University’s Center for Talent Development on June 27, 2015. Mike Zevin, Josh Fixelle, Cody Dirks, and Kevin Kelly led the sessions, one for 7th and 8th graders, the other for high school students. They viewed the sun through three different telescopes at Dearborn Observatory and then listened to a presentation on What it Means to be an Astrophysicist.
