James Madison University's Outreach & Engagement and the Department of Physics & Astronomy are excited to announce a week-long summer space camp, open to all middle-school age students! The camp will be led, by the director of the John C. Wells Planetarium, Shanil Virani.
We will use JMU's facilities like the the John C. Wells Planetarium, which is a $1.5 Million state-of-the-art hybrid facility. Camp goers will also get to experience JMU's Science on the Sphere- a sphere-shaped, visualization tool that was developed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Funding and resources will be provided by NASA.
We seek to inspire and excite the next generation of scientists and engineers! This exciting camp will demonstrate to students that science is constantly changing, constantly uncovering new clues about why our Universe is the way it is, and not some other way.
