Since I started my studies in physics, I have been devoting time to doing outreach.
The Tel Aviv University Astronomy Club
I have been volunteering at the Tel Aviv Astronomy Club (TAU AstroClub) for the past several years. TAU AstroClub is a non-profit outreach organization, managed and operated by students at the Astronomy & Astrophysics department in Tel Aviv University. Our goal is to provide the general public with the opportunity to learn more about physics and astrophysics.
Prior to the COVID-19 outbreak, we hosted numerous events on campus, including lectures and sky observing events. The lectures were at a popular science level and covered different topics in astronomy and astrophysics. These lectures are recorded and are available at the TAU AstroClub website.
Engaging teenagers with astronomy and science
In the past several years, my friends and I have partnered with several non-profit organizations with the goal of engaging teenagers with astronomy and science. These programs are particularly aimed at children from underprivileged backgrounds, where higher education and science are less accessible. In addition, we worked with organizations that aim at bringing young girls closer to STEM disciplines.
With the help of organizations such as "Pre-Atidim" and "Future female scientists", we hosted hundreds of children at the university. During these visits, the children heard lectures about different topics in astronomy, and used a telescope to observe the sun or the night sky.
Astronomy on Tap TLV
Astronomy on Tap TLV (AoTTLV; founded by Dr. Iair Arcavi) is an outreach activity aimed at presenting lectures and astronomy- or space-related news to the general public in an informal environment (at a bar!). Prior to the COVID-19 outbreak, I have been volunteering there.
Recorded Talks (Hebrew)
Below you can find several recorded lectures on various topics in astronomy.
