“The Space Science Lab is a wonderful opportunity to learn by doing,” said PARI Education Director Christi Whitworth. Participants get to to build a scientific instrument to take home or explore the institute’s telescopes and planetarium.
Each day-long lab has a different theme, including: build a model rocket and learn about rocket science; study the constellations, telescopes and planetarium; build an LED sign and program a circuit board; or build a telescope.
PARI is located in the Pisgah Forest of Transylvania County. A full schedule and costs are at www.pari.edu/programs/students/space-science-day-camp-1.
