Upper school students visited AstroCamp this week in Clover, Va. AstroCamp is a unique STEM-based outdoor science program. The children spent 2 nights and 3 days at the camp which specializes in astronomy and physical science. Where better to learn about the universe than under a clear night sky! Classes included lights and lasers, rocketry, electricity and magnetism, and a sophisticated observational astronomy evening program, among many others.
