Astronomy Camp for Adults

May 18, 2007 @ 12:00 am - May 21, 2007 @ 12:00 am EDT

Astronomy Camps are immersion adventures in DOING science. Participants become astronomers operating large telescopes (12, 20, 40, 60, 61-inch diameters), interacting with leading scientists, and interpreting their own scientific observations. The Camps are held in the "Sky Island" environment of Mt. Lemmon Observatory (9200 feet). Daytime activities include solar observing, construction projects, interactive talks, inquiry-based activities led by astronomers and educators, tour of the UA Mirror Lab and other facilities, and hiking the Solar System to scale.
