Sujit's exoplanet study took first place and best of Grade at the 2022 Washington State Science and Engineering Fair. Exo-explorer also took first place and special awards at the 2023 Washington State science & Engineering fair in March of this year. Sujit is passionate about space and has completed online courses in Physics, Solar System, Molecular Spectroscopy, Diversity of Exoplanets, Exploring Time and Space. He loves his 12” Dobsonian telescope and is excited to share and learn from all of you. He will cover mid-transit study of exoplanets TrES-1b, 2b & 3b using NASA EXOTIC - Exoplanet interpretation code and his initial learnings from spectroscopy.
