This program is made to order for those with an interest in the physical sciences, whether professional or merely avocational. You will come away with new knowledge and insights presented by professionals who are current in their fields of expertise.

This course in Astronomy allowed me [who has been out of school some 50 years] to feel comfortable about black holes, particle physics and the big bang enough to impress my children [kinda]. On observing the Pleides formation we were told the Japanese translation was "Subaru". that explains my car's graphic.

Everything was great: content, presentation, location, food, participants, and cost.

A great program but be warned that the Mountain Lake facility has many stairs (no elevator) and that classrooms are on the lower level.
