Last year I worked in a group to make an augmented reality phone application with the following blog:
which was mostly kept up-to-date but a lot was filled in at the end of the project.
This year, however, I am working on my own and developing a radio telescope similar to NASA's Radio Jove Project which they run with schools. The project was run last year so I am taking over from where they left off and then hopefully improving it but at the moment it seems like there is a lot to do and I will have to be very disciplined with my work. The blog I will be taking over soon is:
I can't wait to get started on this project! On my 11th birthday (I think it was) I visited the radio telescope at the Jodrell Bank Observatory - I wanted to be an astronomer when I was growing up so getting to make a telescope is rather exciting. Today, my supervisor asked me if I have an optical telescope - of course I do! so I'm hoping my Mum knows where our telescope is. If I do one of the possible options for developing the project it could mean staying up all night at uni (hopefully not on my own) and observing pulsars.
