Counselor Chris is super busy finishing up his PhD degree in Astrophysics this summer (LET’S ALL WISH HIM GOOD LUCK ON HIS DEFENSE AT THE END OF JULY!!) and he wanted to share with us some cool University of Minnesota virtual outreach events, Universe @ Home, that he has help run in the past before it had to go virtual this summer too. Check out the video below to learn more about what Chris has been studying and a bit about the outreach programs the U of M runs!

Universe @ Home is a summer outreach program run by the Minnesota Institute for Astrophysics. The program is intended to engage people of all ages and backgrounds in the study of space and astronomy, and all of its events are free and online. Universe @ Home runs on Wednesday evenings July through August. 

Please note these events are not run by Camp Quest North.
