Anupama K Xavier (ESR 7) participated in ASGARD project in Belgium, 22-24 March 2023

Anupama K Xavier participated in ASGARD, a school project organised by Sint-Pieterscollege Jette together with the Belgian Space Pole institutes ROB, RMI, BIRA and STCE. Each year, students –between 15 and 19 years old– from the United Kingdom, Portugal, Spain, Belgium, and the Netherlands, send their self invented and self-made experiment into “space” with a stratospheric balloon. Participating in ASGARD is very similar to a real science mission in space, performed by a team during one school year. They also get an opportunity to interact with scientists who work in these institutes to familiarise with present day science and its growth.

Jamie Mathews (ESR 4) writes a piece about his involvement in the project Línte na Farraige, 27 March 2023

In this blog post, Jamie Using reflects on how


 the light installations to visualise the risk of rising seas and storm surges by Finnish artists Timo Aho and Pekka Nittyvirta help us reflect on local changes due to climate change.

Outreach campaign in Kerala, India, by Sohan Suresan (ESR 6)

Sohan Suresan (TAU) conducted an outreach campaign in Kerala, India, targetting high school and higher secondary education students in a couple of public schools. The topics of his campaign were extreme events, climate change and his PhD research topic, respectively understanding and predicting extreme dynamical events and specifically when the jet stream and storms in the North Atlantic behave in a very unusual way for a relatively long period.

Presentation by Anupama Xavier (ESR 7), ASGARD: balloons for science, 28 April 2022

Anupama Xavier participated in the ASGARD project, a balloon project organized once a year by Royal Meteorological Institute of Belgium (RMIB) for schools, allowing students to propose an experiment to be launched with a weather balloon. During the day, the participants were immersed in meteorology, astronomy, and space science via workshops and visits at the three institutes – RMIB, Royal Observatory of Belgium and Royal Belgian Institute for Space Astronomy.

Anupama presented a simplified version of her doctoral studies work to students from primary and secondary education.
