Above and Beyond is an in-depth, hands-on space science and research experience. It is a multi-faceted world of space and research designed in partnership with Duke Talent Identification Program (TIP) Field Studies. This camp explores the universe through astronomy, physics, and astrobiology. This camp models the process that college graduates, undergraduates, and researchers use to make new discoveries and publish works.

• Independent and group research projects
• Hands-on instrument (radio and optical telescopes) 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 astrophysicist who come to PARI to advance their research.
