It seems as though the past three weeks have flown by at the speed of light! We began VAMPY with an exciting day of telescope building, The students worked diligently and were able to finish their telescopes in time for our first observing trip of camp.
On Thursday, our class finished examining the presidency of Barack Obama by looking at major events and issues during his presidency. We watched clips from the 2012 presidential election and campaign commercials and political satire about the campaigns of Barack Obama and Mitt Romney.
