The intended outcome of this project is to initiate the young generation to radio astronomy using existing radio dishes. In Europe, the motivation is to train University students, while in Haïti and in Cameroon, intensive teacher training will be organised. This radio telescope network can also be used by the international radio astronomy community to present hands-on activities to the general public, through e.g. national events like Science Festivals.
This project is supported by IAU Office for Astronomy Outreach and the SKA Communication & Outreach Network. IAU-NOC SKACON
