Chart out the stars and constellations so you can look up at the night sky and KNOW what you’re seeing. Create a massive scale model of the planets and the distance between them, gaining a true understanding of the solar system’s enormity. Examine the beauty of refraction and reflection, using prisms like those used in telescopes, and create magical color patterns with the power to control them. Discover the cosmos in this brand-new Pre-High School program!
This program won’t revolve around reading about planets or looking at photos. We plan to incorporate games, live satellite feeds, interactive models, and much more!
This one-week program, taught by Tufts University Researcher (and popular TikToker!) Miguel Vasquez-Vega, introduces students to topics, techniques, and instruments central to celestial studies in higher education and at leading institutions such as NASA. This is perfect for students who have excelled in middle school science and/or have shown interest in pursuing more specialized courses not typically available until late high school or college.
