It Is Rocket Science Camp

We've all heard the phrase, "it's not rocket science," but in our case, IT IS!

Join our Physics department as they work to discover the secrets of the time-space continuum (and more)....

Physics is the foundation of science. Every other field builds upon its concepts and principles.  If you know physics, you know how to model and predict a system.  If you can predict a system, you can control it.  In other words, physics teaches you how to control the universe!!! Muhahahah.... "ahem", uh, as I was saying; 

In this camp we'll explore some of the many fields of physics, from Newtonian mechanics and the physics of weather systems; to particle physics, neutrinos and the search for dark matter; to astrophysics.  We will visit state-of-the art research laboratories, conduct our own experiments, and use what you learn to construct and launch your own rocket!
