Do you look up at the night sky and wonder, “are we alone?”  Are there planets orbiting around stars other than the Sun – exoplanets – and could they harbor life?  BGSU’s Astronomy camp gives you the experience and skills to address these questions.  By day, campers will learn about how astronomers hunt for exoplanets through hands-on experiments that highlight the strengths and shortcomings of the methods astronomers use in this search.  By night, campers will use the facilities at the BGSU Observatory to view the night sky (when clear) and watch astronomy shows and movies in the BGSU planetarium (when cloudy).  By the end of the session, campers will have a clearer view of these challenging questions, and a better understanding of how astronomers and other physical scientists perform research about the natural world.
