Summer Camps for Rising 5th-8th Grades

Summer will be here before we know it, and Vanderbilt Dyer Observatory is planning to hold summer space science camps July 10-14 for rising 5th-6th graders and July 17-21 for rising 7th-8th graders.  We are still firming up some details but will provide an update about camps including registration on this page in February, so please check back then!

The Dyer Observers Space Science Camps support middle-school students in their exploration of the worlds of science, math, engineering, and technology, and opens up their minds to future career possibilities in these fields.

If your child has a strong interest in astronomy and space science and would like to be a part of the Dyer Observatory Space Science Camps, please download and fill out the application below.

The cost for camp includes all materials and transportation, lunch, and tour of the United States Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville. Merit scholarships are not awarded, but financial aid is available to those students who demonstrate financial need. Please include a note with your application.
