In astronomy camp, kids will learn details about our solar system and our galaxy. We’ll talk with Astrobiologists about their research to find life on other planets. We’ll figure out ways to get humans from Earth to Mars, and how we can sustain life there, which involves some chemistry. Students will learn how a telescope works. They will build one of two different types of simple telescopes—an astronomical and a terrestrial telescope—each with a magnification of 5X. They then experiment with the different telescope designs and determine how the lens combination in each telescope works to magnify an object’s image. At the end of the week, students can take their telescope home so that they can look at the stars.
