School Notes:

  • These exciting residential programs are designed for junior high and high school students who love astronomy and are interested in pursuing an education in the physical sciences or math.
  • Each year Alfred University welcomes pre-college aged students to campus to take part in Summer Astronomy Institutes. These institutes give students the opportunity to learn more about astronomy, to sample life on a college campus, and to meet other students with similar interests and academic ability.
  • The programs provide a mix of night and day time activities. When not in class, students enjoy planned activities on campus as well as free time for relaxation. Living, dining and learning together, students have ample opportunity to get to know each other and develop lasting friendships.
  • The Astronomy Institutes are conducted at the Stull Observatory on the Alfred University Campus. This facility has been judged to be one of the best teaching observatories in the country, and is equipped with telescopes ranging from 8 to 32 inches in diameter as well as electronic detectors and support computers.
  • These programs are staffed by the distinguished faculty of the Alfred University physics department, all recognized experts in their fields. Current research interests of the faculty include variable stars, asteroid measurements, and the study of solar activity.
