Dear all,

Please find some information about the International Astronomical Youth Camp, for 16-24 year olds.

Best wishes,


International Astronomical Youth Camp: 17th July – 6th August 2022 in Sankt Andreasberg, Germany
 
Imagine spending three weeks of your summer in the beautiful countryside – under some of the darkest skies in Europe – working with other young people from all over the world on an astronomical project of your choice. The International Astronomical Youth Camp (IAYC) is a summer research camp which provides a unique international atmosphere for 16-24 year olds to study the Universe. Celebrating diversity is deeply embedded in the culture of the camp – we are dedicated to making the camp accessible to all, and we especially welcome applications from minorities in STEM. We also have grants available for those who are in need of support to attend.

The IAYC is a place for cultural exchange, while learning to design and carry out your own small research project. Science is not about getting the right answer first time around, but about exploring questions and having opportunities to get things wrong – the IAYC is the perfect place to make mistakes and try again! By night you will have access to a number of different telescopes, whether you are a complete beginner or a savvy expert. By afternoon (the morning is for sleeping), you will be working together with other participants on your research project. The groups are led by young scientists and focus on a specific topic related to space and astronomy. There is something for everyone, from the ambitious student to the complete beginner (no previous knowledge of science or astronomy required!). This year the working groups are:
 
EXPANSE - EXPloring AstroNomy for Sustainable dEvelopment
LAME - Local Atmospheric Muons Experiment
MESSY - Modelling Energy Systems SustainablY on exoplanets
ODIN - Observing Distant Interstellar pheNomena
SHINY - Stellar birtH and evolutIoN, Yay!
SUS - SoUnds of the Stars
T-REX - Training Robots to EXplore

For more information, go to https://iayc.org/nextcamp/ to apply (deadline 31st March, or 17th March for grant applications).
