Students will investigate the night sky and explore astronomy beginning in our own Solar System, then expanding outwards to the Milky Way galaxy and the universe beyond! Learn about the Big Bang, stellar evolution, supernovae, neutron stars, black holes, galaxies and cosmology as well as current mysteries like dark matter and dark energy!

In addition to these out-of-this-world experiences, we'll also do field trips to local venues, like the Detroit Institute of Arts and Wayne State's Rock Climbing wall.
