There were 25 students in attendance from institutions all across North America. In addition to listening to lectures and participating in hands-on activities specific to PTA science, the students all stayed on site at the telescope, participated in an observation from the telescope’s command center, and received a guided tour of the telescope (see picture). These five UWM undergraduates are members of the Arecibo Remote Command Center (ARCC) program at UWM, which allows students to remotely control the Arecibo radio telescope and participate in searching the galaxy for radio pulsars.
