Astronomy Self Learning Course
We are all interested in astronomy, which is really why we are here on this website! And yes, we have always wanted to learn more, but either it wasn’t the right time, or there were other commitments. Now we are bringing you a basic crash course of astronomy
2 weeks - 1 Year
Intro to Arduino
With Arduino, one can get to know the basics of microcontrollers, sensors, and Signals. This course is designed to make you comfortable in getting started with Arduino and C/C++ Programming. The ability to program in C/C++ is an important skill to be attained so that students can later better understand more advanced/ Recent programming languages like Python and Java.
Intro to Python
For newcomers and beginners, Python is incredibly easy to learn and use. In fact, it’s one of the most accessible programming languages available. Part of the reason is the simplified syntax with an emphasis on natural language. But it’s also because you can write Python code and execute it much faster. What C++ writes in 10 lines python does in 2!
Basics of Meteorites Course
This course is a guide to the space treasures i.e. meteorites. This course is designed in a very simple, easy to understand language for beginners to have a basic introduction to a whole new world of rocks. By the end of the course, you will be able to understand the similarities and appreciate the differences of the meteorite family.
How to Become A Meteorite Hunter
If you always wanted to study meteorites in detail and learn how to search for real ones, this is the right course that will teach you how to differentiate between terrestrial and space rocks, how to search for them in the fields, and how meteorites formed and where they come from.
How to Become A Moon Surface Analyst
Have you always wondered how did the moon come into existence, what is it composed of, and why we launched the Apollo missions to discover further about the mysterious planet orbiting our Earth? In this course, you will learn about the Moon’s existence, atmosphere, interior, and specifically its surface!
Introduction to Aviation Course
If you always wanted to experience flying an airplane, or have an interest in aviation, this course is the right stop to answer all your questions and satisfy your passion. In this course you will learn the basics of aviation and aircrafts, flying techniques, and many more fun topics. You will also get hands-on experience in flying an airplane by using our computer-based simulator.
The History of Human Space Flight
Humans have been flying to space for nearly six decades—from Yuri Gagarin’s first flight above Earth’s atmosphere to the construction of the International Space Station. Through this course learn the history of all the iconic missions that have been sent to space!
Orbiter - Space Shuttle Course
Learn all about the Space Shuttle in this course. This course goes into detail on many of the shuttle’s subsystems (rocket engines, thermal protection, aerodynamics, environmental control, and life support) and explains how the Shuttle was operated (launch, mission control, payloads, etc.).
The Solar System Course
This course is designed specifically with beginners and intermediate amateur astronomers in mind. Particular emphasis is placed on students who’ve never had an introduction to astronomy. The course is not intended to be technical but rather to deliver key nuggets of information specifically about our Solar System.
The Complete Telescope Course
Using a telescope for the first time is an exciting first step into exploring the universe. This course will teach you all the parts of your telescope and provide tips to maximize your stargazing experience! In this course, you will get also get a first-hand experience in using the most common types of telescopes and find the right one that suits your requirements.
Capture the Night Sky
Pure DSLR Astrophotography
Learn how to use a DSLR camera to capture amazing pictures of the night sky. The program is 3 days long, where 2 days will be online through video call and 1 day will be a trip to a dark location to photograph the night sky.
This program will give you all the basic techniques you need to know before starting your journey in astrophotography.
In this course, we’ll teach you how to photograph the planets, including what equipment you’ll need, how to get set up, tips, tricks, and techniques. Mainly focusing on which camera is suited for planetary photography and the lucky imaging technique.
Astrophotography with Tracking & Telescopes
You might be one of many astrophotographers who enjoy capturing images of the night sky – star-trails, constellations, and meteor showers – with your trusty DSLR mounted on a tripod. Are you feeling like you’re taking the same photos again and again? This course will help you take your astrophotography to the next step. Learn how to track the night sky and how to use a telescope!
DeepSky CCD/CMOS Astrophotography
Learn how the pros do astrophotography!
This course offers deep insight into the workings of CCD/CMOS sensor-based cameras and how they differ from traditional DSLRs. Covering the basics of capturing data to processing it.
Telescope Training Crash Course
2 – 3 hour crash course that will help you learn all the basics about telescopes, the types of telescopes, how to set them up, and align them. If you have an already existing telescope and you don’t know how to use it, this course is also meant to help you.
