Thanks so much to all who contributed to our crowdfunding campaign! With your help we exceeded our goal and we'll be able to purchase the equipment we need to get our undergraduate lab off the ground, as well as to provide some support for our undergrads to travel to present their work at meetings and to visit our telescopes. We've already signed up our first two undergraduate interns, Ryan and Samantha, who will be working with me and Jack this summer to pilot the software defined radio program, developing the curriculum that will be used to train more undergrads working with us going forward.
We continue to be inspired by the huge amount of public support we get at Berkeley SETI Research Center. We hope you will follow us on Facebook ( https://www.facebook.com/BerkeleySETI ) and Twitter ( https://twitter.com/setiathome ) for updates on our science, engineering, education, and our growing undergraduate internship program!
As promised (for those donors who did not request anonymity) we've also given a shout-out on our Facebook page (see https://www.facebook.com/BerkeleySETI/posts/587708681410290 ). For those who donated at $100 and above, we'll let you know when your other perks are ready.
