    We are focused primarily on doing hands-on activities (experiments, rocket launches, and more) associated with lectures geared to help you learn about astronomy and aerospace! We also have telescope viewing sessions (both online and live if there is an event). Lastly, we prepare for national competitions, including the MIT Think competition.
