After an amazing summer running QuantumCamp programs at Chabot Space & Science Center, we are pleased to announce that we will be running our school year classes there as well!
By offering our school programs at Chabot Space & Science Center we gain access to many resources beyond just their beautiful facilities and spacious classrooms, including their historic observatories, planetarium shows, easy access to regional parks for lunch breaks and recess as well as opportunities for advanced collaboration. Our East Bay families are excited, and we hope all of you can visit us there at some point.
We wanted to share some photos of the highlights of our summer at Chabot Space & Science Center, we're proud of the programs we offered this summer and excited about the possibilities of the coming year at Chabot.
The QuantumCamp summer team, made up of educators from around the country and our high school interns, kicked off the summer with a team building "Mission to Mars" at Chabot Space & Science Center.
In addition to their in-class academic programs, QC summer campers participated in all-camp assemblies ranging from science experiment demos, joke-telling contests, and the ever-popular newspaper tower building contest!
Although we loved having lunch on the Chabot campus, a favorite lunch activity was "hiking" to lunch at the nearby Redwood Bowl for a picnic and games of capture the flag and soccer.
Finally, we wouldn't be taking full advantage of everything Chabot Space & Science Center has to offer without visiting the famous observatories! Each week campers got a tour of the telescopes and, weather permitting, got to use the 8" refracting telescope Leah to view Venus.
We're looking forward to an amazing year at Chabot Space & Science Center and hope to see you there!
