Darien Summer School & Enrichment

Astronomy and Beyond!

REGISTER BEFORE March 15 to receive $25 OFF!

Ages 12-17

In this class we leave the earth, moon, sun and planets, and “boldly go” to realms outside our solar system. We use the internet to visit “Red Giants”, dwarfs, black holes, and nebulas. We discuss space travel, how all solar systems are created, who may be out there and whether “they” have visited us on earth. Our excursion includes how scientists discern what is out there, with sonar, telescope, spacecraft photography, and computer calculations. Students see the possible, and we leave them to imagine what is truly impossible.
