Hey @astroDimitrios, You can call me Khan if that's easy to pronounce. I'm from Dhaka, Bangladesh. Lately but I realised that python is something mandatory for astronomical data and found you in GHOU 2020. So, I tend to start learning from the very basic. Hope to have a great time ahead.

Yes, it actually is mandatory :) Greetings. You call me JV is you like

@masterhit
Hi everyone! My name is Wandeclayt (Wan, for short) I'm a long time amateur astronomer and an undergrad physics student and I run an astronomy outreach project (www.ceuprofundo.com) and also volunteer on several science outreach/education projects. My group also work (as volunteers) as advisors for astronomy projects and lecturing teachers on public schools.
We plan to make python projects/notebooks available for some of the projects we work with schools.

Welcome! I hope if you just started a new term/academic year it's going well. This is the first term I'll be testing out some of my coding activities with my own students :)

Welcome @d.gayoso.miranda_gitlab !
@/all I'm starting to look at better ways to deliver notebooks to my students. How do you deliver them? I know some people use Colab but my school doesn't use Google services. I think my ideal would be a version of open edx hosted on a local server.

@astroDimitrios

@/all Hope everyone is doing well and looking forward to the holidays. I have had the chance to test some of my activities and my students have said the difficulty jumps at the start.

I am thinking of doing a few small notebooks to build up skills after my initial intro notebook. I thought maybe things like:
How long does it take light from the Earth to reach the Moon?
What's the intensity of the Sun's light when it gets to Saturn?
Plot the grav. potential well of the Earth.

Each one would get progressively harder and have hints - any thoughts of other interesting bits/scenarios we could use to build up basic Python skills?
