Space: The Final Frontier
Our new Summer University camp is set to boldly go where no man has gone before. This captivating camp — A Journey Through Space and Time — complements our already robust summer lineup.
The camp takes a hands-on approach to the exploration of our solar system and the entire universe. We’ll explore our galaxy, stars, black holes and the entire cosmos. We’ll use fun, hands-on projects and the latest technology to understand the universe and our place in it.
“We located an instructor who’s very enthusiastic about teaching space exploration,” said Carla Green, program manager. “His personality fits our camps perfectly and we’re excited to add this unique class.”
