Overview of Project

Madagascar has recently introduced astronomy and astrophysics curriculum at Honours and Masters level at the University of Antananarivo. Students come from Physics background have embarked into the programme however there are lack of local expertise to conduct widely used cutting edge tools for research. This workshop will deliver a practical programming in Python for astronomy students (along with a crash course and tips for Physics lecturers). We aim to build on astronomy tools that students / lecturers at the university can develop for their research and teaching therefore will have further impact to the community for a long term basis.
