Camp Cosmos expected to be a supernova of fun

The WSU Planetarium is hosting it's ninth annual summer camp from July 8-18th.  Camp Cosmos, geared towards 12-15 year olds, combines scientific content with art, games and puzzles for two weeks of astronomical fun.  Planetarium shows and physics experiements make up part of every day of camp.  This year campers will get to spend time learning about the Apollo 11 moon landing, the recent photograph of the M87 Black Hole, and the search for exoplanets.  In addition to spending time in the planetarium, students will visit the physics labs, several other campus and regional museums, and the campus rec center.  Every day students will eat in the Towers Cafe alongside Wayne State University students, getting a feel for the collegiate experience.  They will also get to learn from a variety of campus faculty from the departments of Physics & Astronomy, Biology, Anthropology and Geology.  

This summer the Campus Computing & Internet Technology Office has made several need-based Summer Engagement Scholarships available for WSU STEM camps, including Camp Cosmos.  Scholarships are still available, and there is a link to the scholarship application on our camp website.  If you are interested in registering for camp, and for more information, please visit our Camp website.
