About the General Meeting Presentation

For many years, HAS has supported the Science and Engineering Fair of Houston (SEFH) by supplying volunteer judges to evaluate student astronomy or astronomy-related projects. In 2018, six HAS voluteer judges attended SFEH which was held at the University of Houston on February 23 & 24. We are very excited and proud to announce that our main program for the June membership meeting will feature five of the students presenting their projects from SFEH 2018. These are some of the best projects we have judged to date! Please join us to listen to their presentations, and encourage the students continuing interest in astronomy and the sciences.

 Starting at 8:00 pm on June 1, we will hear presentations from the following Students:

Mujtaba Hussain – Topic: Analog Kerr Black Hole Event Horizons
 
Qianxu (Jerry) Li - Topic:  Development of a very high efficient fiber bundle for detecting low-mass rocky planets around stars in the solar neighborhood
