Campus Connect: Radio Astronomy Winter School at Pune Gives Experimental Learning Experience to 30 Students


India, Dec. 21 -- As many as 30 students from across India are busy gaining hands-on experience and additional knowledge through the radio astronomy winter school which is a joint initiative by NCRA - TIFR (National Centre for Radio Astrophysics and Tata Institute of Fundamental Research) and IUCAA (Inter University Center for Astronomy and Astrophysics). The sessions are annually held in the month of December and is alternatively conducted by the two institutions. The eleventh batch of students this year have been attending sessions from December 14 which will go on till December 24.

The joint collaborative initiative was started in 2007 and the Radio Physics Laboratory has been conducting the Radio Astronomy winter schools for college students (RAWSC) from 2008 onwards.

Isha Shailesh who is studying Integrated MSc in Physics and in her third year said that she is part of the group which is experimenting at Inter University Center for Astronomy and Astrophysics (IUCAA) and has visited IUCAA for the summer course too.

Bhavesh Rajpoot is a 2nd year student of BSc with specialisation in Physics at Fergusson College and he said, "Apart from academics, the best part of being shortlisted for the course are the experiments," said Rajput.

Poorva Bhalerao is a BTech student of computer engineering from MKSSS's Cummins College of Engineering for women said, "This course exposes us to all branches of astronomy and is a detailed study of what is in the universe. As a child I would often look up at the night sky and wonder. Now we get to study about the higher elements out there." Kaustav Goswami from Dibrugarh University found the course to be different from the other workshops that he has attended. "With the hands on training, it is easier to understand how to apply the theories learnt. Goswami revealed that he plans to pursue a doctorate in Radio Astronomy after which he wants to be part of NCRA. Shantanu Saha who is studying second year BTech in aerospace at IIST Thiruvanthpuram said, "Lecturers are teaching us all about astronomy besides telling us about future prospects and growth of this field. …
