A half-day event, this introduced more than 50 high school physics students in LCC’s Early College to the field of nuclear astrophysics. It included hands-on lessons regarding isotopes, nuclear reactions, and neutron capture. Graduate students gave brief explanations of their research and highlighted their own paths that led to JINA-CEE.
The workshop "Nucleosynthesis away from stability" addresses reaction rates and nucleosynthesis of radioactive species, and implications for GCE. The goal of the workshop is to document the present state of knowledge, identify key open questions, and coordinate efforts in experiments, simulations and observations.
The 2015 Low Energy Community Meeting was held in East Lansing Michigan on the Campus of Michigan State University.
A week long program at one of two world leading nuclear physics laboratories: Nuclear Science Laboratory located on the campus of the University of Notre Dame and the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory located on the campus of Michigan State University. Learn nuclear astrophysics through lectures from faculty, and modern physics experiments.
Middle and high school physical science teachers from the US and Canada participate in a week-long professional development program to learn techniques for teaching nuclear astrophysics in the classroom. Activities are similar to the student week, but also include lesson plans and materials.
This program invites MSU alumni to bring their grandchildren for three days of classes on campus. Participants used JINA-CEE’s “marble nuclei” model to learn about isotopes and nuclear reactions before touring the National Superconducting Cyclotron laboratory
Young Scientists Study Group on Neutrino & Nuclear Physics for Nucleosynthesis & Chemical Evolution (Opens in a new window)
In China, the Jiangmen Underground Neutrino Observatory (JUNO) will be both searching for new physics and observing astrophysical neutrinos. The Jinping Underground Laboratory for Nuclear Astrophysics (JUNA) will be measuring key nuclear reactions for stellar evolution and nucleosynthesis.
