Class VI to XII

We are presenting a challenging workshop on Astrophysics & Cosmology to highly motivated students. The material is derived from the successful 12-week course offered at the YS Science Centre last year. This workshop will be an introduction to the upcoming series on advanced topics in astrophysics and cosmology.

We will be using a Universe simulator to take virtual tours of the cosmos and study particular celestial bodies in detail. The participants can view the demonstration of the use of this software during the session and explore on their own later. A free version of the software is also available for download on their website.
