Pulse at Parkes at Pawsey in Perth
PULSE@Parkes is an education program allowing high school students to take control of the Parkes radio telescope and do some real science by observing pulsars. Pulsars, the rapidly spinning remnants of stars after supernova explosions, are studied by astronomers to test the fundamental laws of physics. The PULSE@Parkes team recently ran a session for groups of high school students at the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre in Perth, following this up with an outreach session as AstroFest a couple of days later.
