After the fixture was sealed within the bell jar, the Margherita 2 underwent bakeout and a test seal on a one-inch tile. Following this small success, a larger project of sealing a larger tile during cesiation launched in the final week of the author's summer in the LAPPD Lab. Central to the ability to control these processes is the ability to monitor temperatures, pressures, and RGA plots as well as adjust heating inputs accurately and timely. This report documents the heating procedures, basic sealing cycle, and plotting past events or in real-time with the Margherita 2 infrastructure.
Now in its third year, the STEM Fellowship Big Data Challenge is a competition that helps high school students get excited about Data Science and its potential to support inquiry-based learning and problem solving.
