Pia Wadjarri school visits
The Murchison Radio-astronomy Observatory (MRO) -- home to the ASKAP telescope, the Murchison Widefield Array, and site of the SKA-Low telescope -- is on Wajarri Yamaji Country in Western Australia. The Pia Wadjarri community is close to the MRO, and each year CSIRO researchers visit the Pia Wadjarri Remote Community school and take the students on an excursion to the MRO. In addition, this year students from the school visited Perth as part of a joint science camp by arranged by Curtin University and CSIRO. During their trip, students joined in activities at Curtin and CSIRO sites, visited the WA Museum Boola Bardip and the Perth science museum Scitech, and also designed, built and launched some water rockets! In the image above, Alec Thomson is using the GLEAM-o-scope to explain mutli-wavelength views of the sky to the students in the Pawsey Supercomputing Research Centre visualisation space.
