Interns at The Learning Center at the Pisgah Astronomical Research Institute prepared and distributed STEM@Home science kits for homebound students unable to attend summer camp due to the Covid-19 pandemic.  Over 100 kits were distributed across western North Carolina to students in grades 6 -12 through the funding and support of cooperative agreement NNX16AB87A.

“Camp Connect” is a month long (July 1 – August 6) interactive distance learning science experience exploring topics ranging from stellar and planetary astronomy to cryptography.  More information can be found at:
