Developed by Young-Scientist Please note that this is a kid-only workshop
Eligibility: Class VI to XII
The overwhelming interest in Black Holes has motivated the creation of this workshop. We will continue our journey through the YS Astrophysics Workshop Series and focus this time on Black Holes. The material is derived from the successful 12-week course offered at the YS Science Centre, last year. This workshop will be challenging and use concepts from Quantum Mechanics and Relativity to study Astronomy. Only highly motivated students are recommended to register.
Space Engine 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.
Explore astrophysics further and study the science behind Black Holes.
Review stellar mechanics and clarify the conditions necessary for a black hole to form.
Introduce concepts like Schwarzschild radius, Hawking radiation, information loss paradox etc.
The registered number will be added to a temporary WhatsApp group where further instructions will be shared.
The online session will take place over Zoom Meetings.
A computer with speakers/headphones and a reliable internet connection is necessary.
The facilitator will share their computer screen where the content will be displayed (Powerpoint presentation, worksheets, software UI, videos, simulations, virtual tour etc.).
The facilitator will also be giving live audio commentary and explanations.
The participants can interact with the facilitator using the chat feature.
The participants will have their audio muted and their video cam stopped to ensure a smooth streaming experience for all.
One ticket permits one device (computer/tablet) to join the Zoom Meeting
