Clemson University and the Pisgah Astronomical Research Institute have partnered to create new Summer Research Experiences.
Our programs for middle school and high school aged campers provide hands-on explorations into astronomy and space science and the tools to make discoveries of their own.
Explore the universe with state of the art STEM technology, like NASA built radio telescopes, research grade optical telescopes, and one of the world’s largest archives of astronomical data.
Conduct independent and group research under the mentorship of astronomers and scientists. Campers will earn an official research certificate and will have their work published in PARI’s summer research proceedings, with an opportunity to submit their work to a regional conference.
Tour cutting edge astronomy research labs at Clemson University
Have a blast with fellow campers through STEM challenges, field trips, games, and more! (river tubing, hiking, PARI Ball, campfires, swimming at waterfalls, and rocketry competitions, to name a few)
