For years HRPO has offered an invitation-only program for older kids called Review & Expansion. The kids invited had been involved in HRPO’s Science Academy, Rocket Camp (now Space Exploration Camp) and Stargazers Camp (now Summer Camp) and wanted to learn more about astronomy- and physics-related STEM.

That program is not ending…but is in fact having a glorious transformation. Review & Expansion is now Overview & Expansion, and is for all kids in this age range.

*abstract strategy games
*NASA missions
*engineering and robotics
*sky viewing
*preparing for EMPs and/or CMEs
*the lastest space exploration and physics news
*unique challenges not afforded in any other HRPO program
        (and sometimes, nowhere else in town)

There will be certificates awarded, and a chance for O&E kids to become Apprentices, and learn the actual basics and specifics of running and operating a working astronomical observatory!
