PULSE@Parkes Teachers FAQ
Control the Parkes Radio Telescope and do REAL science in REAL time to make REAL discoveries!
Barry Homewood from Braemar College working with astronomer
The PULSE@Parkes project allows high-school students to carry out real observations
using the Parkes radio telescope situated in New South Wales, Australia. The project
runs in two modes. In the first mode a class of students (Years 10 to 12) undertakes
remote observations of the telescope from the Australia Telescope National Facility
headquarters in Marsfield, Sydney. In the second mode the students work through
the online learning activities using archival data available from our website.
This second mode does not require the school students coming to Sydney.
