Programme – University of Copenhagen

Programme

The main emphasis of the school is on practical observations. The students will be divided into groups of four who will, with the help of an experienced tutor, plan and carry out astronomical observations. These observations are then reduced and analysed. During the last day of the school each group will present their work to the others.
