I was one of the Outreach Coordinators for the astronomy department at Berkeley. My main project was organizing Astronomy Night at Berkeley. During the spring, summer, and fall, we have monthly public talks followed by a star party on the roof of Campbell Hall. The event brings 100+ visitors to the department every month.
Over the last few years, Science@Cal has started Spanish-language outreach programs in Oakland and San Francisco. I’ve led the astronomy department’s involvement in these events.
I was part of a group of grad students who raised over $7,000 to purchase virtual reality equipment to enhance our astronomy demos. I led the purchase and construction of our two desktop computer + Oculus Rift setups. We’ve gathered a range of VR demos that we show at events like Astro Night and Cal Day.
