2014 – Cosmos in the Med – Cosmology and astrophysics workshop
Cosmos in the Med was held from 24 to 26 September 2014 at the University of Malta as part of George Smoot’s Teaching the Universe programme. The workshop brought together scientists, students and teachers (sixth form and undergraduate) for three days of hands-on learning.
As a final exercise, we asked the students to prepare a short video or live presentation to explain a concept they learned about during the workshop.
The lectures are available on Youtube.
