Every year our junior class has the opportunity to study astronomy for a week at science camp held at our very own camping facility, Mount Kare, in Wrightwood. Topics include: constellations, life cycle of stars, supernova, black holes, white dwarfs, pulsars, galaxies, Messier objects, star clusters, stellar distances, the ecliptic, the zodiac, near earth objects (NEOs), moon phases, solar and lunar eclipes, Keplers laws and planetary motion, retrograde motion and spacetime. Students have the opportunity to gaze at the stars with telescopes and augmented reality apps each night. They enjoy space themed excitement throughout the week, including an epic alien lazer tag battle, hands-on labs, movie making fun and a campfire with smores and a movie.
