SOFIA Science on Tour
SOFIA Science on Tour will conclude with a Proposal Tools Webinar on August 9th.
View the agenda for the Proposal Tools Webinar here.
From May to August 2019, members of the SOFIA science team will be deployed across the U.S. to present recent SOFIA science and provide help to current users and proposers through seminars and workshops, depending on the needs of the local community. At no cost to participants or the host institution, SOFIA Science on Tour enables research institutes and university departments to offer staff and students free resources to learn about new research discoveries and opportunities through a diverse range of presentations, tutorials, and targeted technical support.
Contact the Help Desk for more information on how to get SOFIA Science on Tour to come to your institution with an event specifically tailored to the needs of your staff and students.
The current schedule of events will be updated regularly as new events are scheduled and host informational webpages become available.
