The European Southern Observatory (ESO) invites students aged 16 to 18 to join a unique week-long astronomy event in the Italian Alps from 26 December 2016 to 1 January 2017. By registering for this event, students join a group of more than 50 young people to become part of a vibrant international alumni community of ESO astronomers.
This ESO Astronomy Camp is held at the Astronomical Observatory of the Autonomous Region of the Aosta Valley in the Alps. The camp will explore the theme of the Multiwavelength Universe via several astronomical sessions, including lectures, hands-on activities, and night-time observations with the telescopes of the Observatory, alongside various social activities, winter sports and excursions.
New Year’s Eve will be celebrated with a traditional dinner and a Star Party.
