Return to Main AstroTech Overview

Return to 2021 AstroTech Info Page

AstroTech participants will have an opportunity to network with the broader astronomical instrumentation community. In addition to the instructional team, individuals from industry, government, and academic organizations will spend a day or more at AstroTech, giving feedback on instrument designs and participating in career networking sessions. This will enable AstroTech participants to learn about different career paths and opportunities in instrumentation, as well as expand their network.

Participating groups and organizations for AstroTech 2021 tentatively include:
