This one week program is great for students fascinated by outer space and eager to understand the macroscopic laws of physics.
This acedemic program gives students the opportunity to explore the fundamentals of physics that govern the universe. It will cover hot topics such as black holes, dark matter, neutrinos, the “God” particle and many more! Students will learn how to manipulate the massive amounts of data coming in from NASA and other space research institutions.

'The program gives a good introduction into many of the topics within cosmology. The teachers are knowledgeable in what they talked about. '
'The program was an amazing experience. My teachers were very knowledgeable and taught me so much. For someone who wants to pursue theoretical astrophysics in the future, I could not have found a better summer program. It only made my love for physics greater, and it was exactly what I was looking for...We were also given the opportunity to see the CFA at Harvard, which was a trip I will never forget. Hopefully I will end up there myself one day!'
"It was exciting and I learned a lot. My understanding of the universe has broadened considerably. The teacher was intelligent and easy to talk too/learn from."
"Mr. Coljee is my teacher and I very much enjoyed this program. It was an impeccable combination of lectures, group work and visiting interesting places and topics."
"Program: enjoyed how talks were accompanied by videos. Group projects were engaging and fun. Topics were always interesting. Teacher: highly knowledgeable teacher-always answers questions thoroughly. Fun class and positive attitude."
“The content of the program and our teacher were both awesome. Our teacher really knew what he was talking about and had a ton of super interesting content to teach us. We watched a few movies on the topic we were learning about and during which our teacher would go more in depth to explain everything; the combinations of the two helped me learn a lot. We also researched topics and did presentations which were actually a lot of fun and were super interesting to do.”
“I liked how we could explore our interests of space in an environment of like-minded individuals. The teacher possessed spectacular knowledge of the topic and had an answer to every question. I primarily enjoyed the nature of the program while being encouraged to chase our interests by our obviously well-written, intelligent teacher. I feel motivated to further explore topics of space.”
“I loved everything especially talking about quarks and quantum physics. The teacher was very nice, calm and inclusive and created an amazing classroom atmosphere filled with fun, productivity and kindness.”
