SPACE MOUNTAIN: Astronomy in Hawaii (PHY 101)
May 13-27, 2019
During this 2-week program you will learn the physical and theoretical tools of astronomy, and the creative way these tools are employed to answer fundamental questions about the universe and our place in it.

+At the summit of Mauna Kea, you will meet astronomers at work
+At Volcanoes National Park, you will see first-hand the energy source that keeps the Earth alive—our planet’s interior heat
