The Institute for Scientist & Engineer Educators (ISEE) and University of California, Berkeley are pleased to announce the new AstroTech Summer School to be held at UC Berkeley.

A core goal of AstroTech is to help reverse the underrepresentation of people of color, women and gender minorities, and other marginalized groups in astronomy instrumentation. We especially encourage individuals from historically underrepresented groups to apply.

Designed for upper-level undergraduate students and early graduate students in astronomy, engineering, physics, or computer science.

Participants will gain skills, knowledge, and mindset to advance in the field of instrumentation, including:

Designing, building, and testing an astronomical instrument,

Practicing inclusive teamwork,

Learning about careers in instrumentation,

Networking with people from telescopes, universities, and companies across the U.S.

All applicants selected to participate in AstroTech will be provided with substantial financial assistance for travel and accommodations.

The online application form is open!

We recommend you begin the application as soon as possible.
