Dear members and friends of the KITION PLANETARIUM & OBSERVATORY,
We would like to inform you about our online summer sessions PROGRAMMING IN ASTRONOMY specifically prepared for Lyceum students.
These four sessions are designed to develop skills of usage programming languages.
The educational tasks were chosen in such way, that from one session to the next they help to express ideas in mind into codes and visualization of models.
During the sessions different techniques and culture of programming are constantly under consideration.
This course meets the challenge to learn something interesting and new in summer.
Basic knowledge in programming is required, being necessary to solve the placement task. It is published in the invitation in English and Russian.
The course will be delivered by the Astrophysicist Alexander Prokofyev.
Alexander Prokofyev graduated with honor the Department of Physics at Moscow State University (Lomonosov University). His scientific work is connected to “Cosmic Strings in Expanded Theories of Gravitation”. Nowadays he conducts research in archeoastronomy, organizes and participates in observations of total solar eclipses, meteor showers and asteroid occultations. He has publications in scientific and popular editions, and makes reports in both national and International conferences, from Cyprus to the USA. He is known for his pedagogical skills. For example, the students he prepared for the competitions of the International Olympiad in Astronomy and Astrophysics achieved an ‘honorable mention’ level, entering the top half of the talented students on the planet. It is the highest ever award that Cypriot participants have achieved.
On completion of the course a participation certificate will be awarded. Booking in advance is obligatory.
