You have been awarded a publicly funded grant to study a topic covered in this class.
You will need to present a visualization of the material for a public audience; however, the visualization/animation still needs to be physically accurate.
The animation/visualization can be in a variety of formats:
The Project will be graded on the following criteria:
This project will count for 10% of your total course grade.
Here are some examples and ideas for topics provided by Dr. Caballero-Nieves:
How the interior of stars evolved with time for different masses
How a stars spectrum can evolved with temperature or gravity
How star clusters evolve with time
Recreating stellar light curves and being able to change their parameters (what it looks like edge on versus face-on, etc.)
Cartoon representation of what happens during star formation or binary interactions
Create figures using some of the physics principals we’ve gone over in class
