The final session in the last semester was
about astronomy. In the popular science lecture we got a chance to learn about
extreme objects in space and many methods that are used to calculate distances
in the outreaches of space. For the practical task we dived into parallax. We
used the parallax method to first calculate how far an object is from a phone
on the table, and then we sent the students outside to calculate distance to
far away buildings. In the in-depth lecture, we discussed black holes and relativity.
Both of these sessions were met with great
reviews and it could be seen that the students had fun during both the lectures
and practical task. This season has been a great success, and records have been
broken, we are looking forward to the new year.
