The Lyceum Space Adventure
What is it like to live aboard the International Space Station? Or repair the Hubble Space Telescope? Or see the sun through a filtered telescope?
Students learned the answers to the above questions and more in Monterey County’s first-ever space-camp like program. Each day was filled with exciting and interactive activities. They learned about outer space from two astronauts, the solar system from two astronomers, discovered planets at the Ching Planetarium, saw the latest in science and technology at the Naval Postgraduate School, launched their own rocket, traveled to the Chabot Space & Science Center and much much more.
