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
We would like to invite you to participate in a JINA-CEE sponsored workshop on all things R-matrix that will be held June 27 to July 1, 2016, in Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA.
The NIC School will take place at Niigata University, about 10 km from the NIC-XIV Symposium site from 13-17 June 2016, preceding the NIC-XIV Symposium. Lectures, presented by internationally recognized experts, will cover various areas of research in nuclear astrophysics, from theories to experiments and observations.
This is an exciting time for the study of r-process nucleosynthesis. Astrophysical simulations of neutron star mergers and core collapse supernovae are making rapid progress, and locating attractive sites for the r-process.
This international symposium aims to bring theorists and observers together to assess the current state of knowledge, and to identify areas in which more theoretical work is needed to enable interpretation and extraction of information from observations. Additional goals are to inform observers and experimenters regarding complementary efforts, and to promote new collaborations to undertake in-depth investigations. Because of the breadth of physics and astrophysics needed to describe neutron stars, frontier efforts that are necessarily multidisciplinary are required.
The workshop will focus on fostering collaborations, sharing of resources, and new experimental initiatives aimed at improving our understanding of X-ray bursts and will give the opportunity to bring the community together to discuss the uncertainties in X-ray burst nucleosynthesis, the availability of current and future resources, and how to utilize resources more effectively to address uncertainties in X-ray bursts.
Dear Nuclear Astrophysics Colleague,
We would like to invite you to participate in the JINA-CEE Frontiers in Nuclear Astrophysics Meeting to be held on March 29-31, 2016, at the Gillespie Conference Center, 53995 SR 933, South Bend, IN 46637.
The purpose of this meeting is to collect ideas for the preparation of the next NuPECC long range plan in Nuclear Astrophysics.
This Joint Institute for Nuclear Astrophysics (JINA) workshop aims to bring together Australian and international experts from stellar evolution, supernova theory, stellar spectroscopy, hydrodynamics, and nuclear physics with expected topics including:
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.
