An Interactive Q&A Forum
Well for starters it’s a club with like minded people debating and talking about different ideas from all parts of physics and astrophysics not only astronomy.
The Club itself was founded by Rohit Chinchwadkar in 2017. The club’s goal is to spread the curiosity towards astronomy to everyone, to achieve this the club holds many events as follows:
Starsqueez: An event held in the college premises itself where the club invites teams from the city schools to participate in a brainstorming session of questions related to astronomy, astrophysics and many similar themes.
Stargaze: An event wherein the club members speak and educate the audience on different topics and they are also made familiar with different software like the Stellerium which is used for observing the nights sky and finally an observation session is held in which the club’s own computerised telescope is used to observe different celestial bodies.
Astrominar: A webinar from the members of the club on topics they have interest in and want to educate the public about. It was a recent addition to list of activities of the club and had a huge success as people outside the country too joined in on the webinar held this year.
The Astornomy club is blessed to have witness interaction with great minds. On 2018 the some members of the club got to be the part of International conference physical universe and in 2020 the club witnessed a QnA session with Dr. U Raja Babu, the Programme Director of ‘Mission Shakti’ DRDO. This are the things which separates this club from the rest of the astronomy clubs in the city.
The club plans to conduct many such activities and is always in search for active young minds, there is no such criteria for becoming a member but if you want the title of ‘Club coordinator’ one is interviewed accordingly by the then present members.
HOPE THIS HELPS!
