|A shelter fit for the moon!|
On Monday, we learned about the explorations of our Moon. Campers learned about the technology behind landing spacecrafts and tested it out by tossing their personal designs over the edge of the Rotunda balcony. Ask your camper how their's fared! The Green group put together a shelter fit for the moon while Red group visited our planetarium for a special show, Larry Cat in Space.

On Tuesday we explored new planets and learned about telescopes. Our campers learned how telescopes can be used to see previously unseen images in space, just like New Horizons which neared Pluto and gave us a new look at the dwarf planet. Yellow and Green groups made their own functioning telescopes (ask them why the image is upside-down!) and watched Two Small Pieces of Glass, one of our planetarium shows. Meanwhile, the Red group discovered and explored a strange new planet. Ask your camper what they found!
|Our day coincided perfectly with the New Horizons mission!|
|From Mission control...|
|...To outer space!|
|Our "rovers" exploring Mars.|
|A wonderful Mars diorama!|
Friday was a blast with water rockets! Our campers worked together to design and create rockets, which we then launched in Palmer Field. Ask your camper how the designs worked!
|Ready for liftoff!|

This week has been filled with fun and we hope you had a blast!
