2020 MESA Summer School : August 10 - 14

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, slide  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 ZZZZZ 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.


A Google Sheet for use during the Labs.

A Dropbox for use during the Labs.
