UvA Radio Astronomy Field Trip

Submitter: Jason Hessels, Joeri van Leeuwen, Michael Wise
Description: On May 6th, 2015 we hosted an all-day field trip for the Masters students in the University of Amsterdam Radio Astronomy class we are teaching. The students got a tour of the Dwingeloo telescope, JIVE correlator, LOFAR/WSRT control room, the WSRT dishes, EMBRACE, and finally the LOFAR Superterp (where we had to run back to the bus during a thunderstorm).

Many thanks go to Paul Boven, Zsolt Paragi, Luciano Cerrigone, and Roy Smits for their very valuable contributions in making demonstrations and presentations to the students.
