Above and Beyond is an in-depth, experience that is designed to campers in the multi-faceted world of space science and research. Originally designed as a partnership between the Learning Center at PARI and the Duke TIP Field Studies program,
this camp explores the universe through astronomy,
physics, and astrobiology. This camp models the process that college graduates, undergraduates, and researchers in the field use to produce publishable work.

• Independent and group research projects
• Hands-on instrument (radio and optical) training and understanding their purpose as they relate to the fields of physics, astronomy, and astrobiology
• Develop research methodology through planning and implementation
• Analyze data consistently with prior research
• Formulate conclusions of the nature of celestial objects using scientific data
• Curriculum parallels material taught in college-level courses working with the same instruments and resources available to researchers who work with the Learning Center
• Special guest speakers
• Recreational activities, including visiting local waterfalls, swimming holes and hiking in the Blue Ridge Mountains

Above & Beyond is available to students grades 6 – 12, as a residential camp.

This mini session focuses primarily on the foundational skills and knowledge needed for astronomical research. Campers focus on an in depth investigation of a topic in current astrobiology research.
