Splash Berkeley

In Fall 2018, I taught one-meeting classes to high schoolers along with my classmate and dear friend Arani Acharya. Our courses:

  • S391: Why Quantum? (notes)
  • S392: Spacetime (notes)

Splash is one of the most exciting events that I have had the pleasure of participating in at Berkeley. I remember the kind of impact and impression that scientists had on me as a kid, and I relish the ability to be that person for somebody.

Astronomy 98/198: Python for Astronomers

Note: I am scheduled to teach this class again in Spring 2019 with Orion Lyau and Alexander Ye. Please email me regarding enrollment questions.

In Spring 2018, I taught Astronomy 98/198: Python for Astronomers along with Makena Fetzer and Orion Lyau. Astronomy 98/198 is intended to be an introduction to Python and does not demand any prerequisites or prior coding experience. Emphasis is placed on application in data analysis settings, particularly with astronomical data sets. Astronomy 98/198 is a two-unit class affiliated with Democratic Education at Cal (DeCal). You can find the syllabus here. Our faculty sponsor was Mariska Kriek.

Every class, we asked a silly question on the attendance form. You can find those questions, and some choice answers to those questions, here.
