Girls Exploring the Universe (GETU) 2021 Virtual Summer Camp

July 20, 2021

We are now accepting applications for the Online Girls Exploring the Universe (GETU) camp. This program offers an astronomy focused experience for middle school-aged kids primarily in Albemarle and nearby counties. We will be fully online this year, with activities spanning two weekends in mid August from 1-3pm EDT each day. Each camp day will offer a different set of activities and campers are free to join any or all days of the camp as their schedule allows. We will be preparing materials for the hands on activities ahead of time, so campers only need an internet connection to join in!

When: August 14th, 15th, 21st, and 22nd from 1 - 3 pm.
Where: Online

Please apply by July 24th, 2021 so the materials have enough time to be assembled: https://getu-uva.squarespace.com/apply-2021. Campers will have the option of picking up or receiving their kits by mail. .
