PULSE@Parkes: Application for an Observing Slot

Observing slots on the April - September 2021 Parkes schedule are now open for applications.

Please note that due to the current situation with COVID-19 we have now moved to remote online sessions.

If interested in the 15 March session please contact robert.hollow(at)csiro.au as soon as possible.

Expressions of interest for the April - September sessions close 10 March 2021. Please email to robert.hollow(at)csiro.au

Sessions may include students from more than one school. Sessions will be conducted using the secure Webex videoconference platform through CSIRO. We can accommodate a mix of students in the classroom and students calling in from home if required.

With remote sessions we also have the option of delivering the background talk ahead of the session day or four Sydney schools can deliver in person.
