AstroCamp: Journey to the Stars
The University of Wyoming is host to one of 20 ExxonMobil Bernard Harris Summer Science Camps. Forty-eight campers will be selected to learn about science, math, and engineering. They will observe the universe with professional telescopes, study astronomical images on computers, contruct scientific spectrographs to identify chemical elements, and build and launch model rockets. Activities will be led by professional astronomers, college students, and high school science teachers.
This FREE 10-day residential, on-campus science camp is open to all students residing in Wyoming. Additionally, the camp is open to students residing in the following counties: Western Nebraska, Northern Colorado, and Western South Dakota. Students who will be entering 6th, 7th, or 8th grade in the Fall are encouraged to apply. Participants from previous camps and immediate family members of ExxonMobil employees are not eligible to apply.
