[2021-04-09]From STEM to STEAM : the place of art in sciences

When you mingle “STEM” disciplines (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) with art, you obtain a STEAM project, such as, e.g. the MOMSTER project. MOMSTER has recently launched an art and design contest, open to students of secondary schools from every year and orientation. Ideal to stay busy during the Easter break.

The mission consists in creating an artwork and/or a sketch on the theme of meteors and/or the radio detection of meteors. The winning project will be used to decorate the MOMSTER boxes to transport the material to schools

Deadline of the contest: 2 May 2021.

Examples of spectrograms recorded in the first few hours are shown below:





In the future, plans are to show the data live to the public and provide some educational material about meteors, their radio detection and BRAMS.
