Registration is required for participation. Your feedback will also help us to set the schedule and topics we cover, so please register!

The MAST Summer Webinar is comprised of 6 weekly, interactive sessions, each one hour long. Each week, we'll log into the TIKE Cloud Science Platform and work through a Jupyter Notebook. The Notebooks are designed to teach you how to work on the cloud, with a particular focus on data from the TESS Mission. Topics will include:

  • Programmatically accessing data, using APIs
  • Cloud computing
  • Machine learning
  • Exoplanet transits
  • Stellar properties: asteroseismology, flares, and rotation
  • Transient Phenomena

Since this is an interactive workshop, each session will include at least 10-15 minutes for participants to solve coding exercises. Classes are designed with all skill levels in mind, but you should have at least some exposure to Python to get the most out of the webinar.
