Tickets are available 30 days before each event. Visit our Open House Days and Telescope Nights pages for more information.
Summer Camp Registration is now Open
The focus of Vanderbilt Dyer Observatory’s camp is astronomy and space science. Campers learn about how scientists discover the secrets of the universe, from exotic black holes to the nature of light. During the week, campers are engaged in exciting hands-on educational science activities: launching rockets, working with and building electronics, experimenting with lasers, and working with telescopes. The camp curriculum has been created by an expert team of astronomy professors, space scientists, and area science teachers.
