Virtual VLA Tour: Juneteenth Special Edition

June 19, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm MDT


Each summer, the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) welcomes new students to our National Astronomy Consortium (NAC), an innovative program that provides research opportunities and long-term mentoring support to underrepresented students in the STEM fields. In honor of Juneteenth, we hope you’ll join us for this special Very Large Array (VLA) virtual tour led and presented by some of this year’s NAC students, where they will talk about the great work done by the VLA and how they’re utilizing it for their research projects.

This virtual tour will take place on Saturday, June 19, 2021, 1-2 PM MDT [Mountain Daylight Time, UTC/GMT -6].

Please note: due to radio frequency interference (RFI) we are unable to hold any events live from the VLA site so our virtual tours consist of the following via zoom from our offices in Socorro, New Mexico:
– a short introduction to NRAO
– a brief slide presentation on the tour topic
– interviews/conversations with guest experts
– live Q&A with our STEAM Ed team and guest experts

This event will take place on Zoom. Registration is required.
