An introduction to “Astro-Instrumentation”

These activity-based, week-long day camps run from 4pm to 10pm. Designed for students that will be going into 7th, 8th, or 9th grade in the fall, this year at middle school camp, students will learn about the different types of instruments used in astronomical research.  Other activities will include hiking, drawing, playing games, and more.  If your young scientist is interested in using instruments to collect astronomical information, this is the camp for them!
