2021 MESA Summer School : August 9 - 20

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!

Be familiar with installing MESA and setting up your own MESA work directories. You must have MESA version 15140 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.
