2020 NRAO/GBO Summer Student Symposium

The summer students at NRAO/GBO each year give a talk at the end of the summer to present their research to our staff, and the undergrads and some grad students prepare a written report on their research. In 2020 because of the pandemic, these presentations were given by zoom during the "2020 Summer Student Symposium". This page records the proceedings of this symposium, including the recorded talks and written reports.
