The Universe for Future Scientists (Age 14-17)
Youth Education

Come explore the universe and become an Astronomer for a week! Go deep learning about galaxies, stars, dark matter, black holes and more! This camp will help shed some light on the so-called darkness of the universe and delve into the physics of these objects. You'll attend personal lectures from U of U astronomers and demos to help demonstrate the physical properties of objects we can only see through a telescope. Speaking of telescopes, you'll also learn how to use the telescopes at the U's own Observatory to see objects with your eye and take genuine data with astronomical cameras and spectrographs! Finally, end the week with a field trip to East Canyon State Park, an International Dark Sky Park! Co-sponsored with the Department of Physics and Astronomy.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Explore the universe
  • Learn about a career in astronomy
  • Learn how scientists study the universe
