UAT Workshop 2010

The third NSF-sponsored Undergraduate ALFALFA Workshop was held at the Arecibo Observatory on January 11 - 13, 2010. The Workshop is part of the NSF-sponsored Undergraduate ALFALFA Team program to promote undergraduate research within the ALFALFA project. Attendees are given tours of the telescope, and operate it during observing runs. The Workshop was attended by 32 students and their faculty mentors from 16 undergraduate institutions. Geoff Baum '10 was fortunate to attend the workshop for a second time with SLU astronomer Jeffrey Miller to present the results of his senior research project: "Numerical N-Body Simulation and Visualization"
