STEM – Hands-on learning
STEM Camps – Astronomy • Science • Space
Our STEM camps, astronomy, science, and space provide an array of learning experiences – from astronomy, physics and astrobiology (with the same equipment once used by NASA), to simulating space missions that teach leadership, teamwork, and STEM principles. Or you may choose an experience in robotics, sensors, artificial intelligence (AI); cryptography and secret messages; computational thinking; 3D design/printing and more.
PARI is located on a 200 acre historic NASA site, nestled in the beautiful Blue Ridge mountains, and provides a once in a lifetime exposure to science, outdoor adventure, leadership development, social comradery and fun.
