The Girls Exploring the Universe (GETU) program offers an exciting, on‐campus summer experience at the University of Virginia for middle school girls designed to increase their interest and curiosity in astronomy and science. GETU will be offered at U.Va from July 17 - 22, 2017. Activities will run from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. each day. This year's camp will include a one-day field trip to Green Bank Observatory, and one or two open nights at McCormick Observatory for families of participating students (weather permitting). GETU is free of charge to students who are selected to participate.
The GETU program is sponsored by the National Science Foundation and by the University of Virginia Department of Astronomy.
