This Sonoma State University program brings astronomy research opportunities to teens and young adults from across the nation in virtual out-of-school settings. Participants work with a mentor to conduct research. Research focuses on photometry, specifically creating and analyzing lightcurves from variable stars, eclipsing binaries, stellar systems with exoplanets, and gamma ray burst follow-up optical observations. Working with advanced amateurs, such as AAVSO members, as well as NASA and other subject matter experts, participants build professional networks.
