2018 MESA Summer School : August 13 - 17

Be ready to interact with your fellow participants, TAs, and Lecturers.

An integral part of a Summer School is MESA oriented Labs designed to generate interactions. This is not a passive, presentation oriented, summer school!


Bring your laptop as we only provide internet access. Be familiar with installing MESA and setting up your own MESA work directories. You must have MESA version 10398 installed.


Some Labs use basic Fortran coding; do loops and if-then structures.

You should be fine if you’ve coded before in almost any language.


Collaboration venues include our Summer School Facebook page

and the mesa-users@lists.mesastar.org email list.
