For young designers interested in space, and for those who would like to learn how professional astronomers and astrophysicists gather information about space, MODA's astrophotography camp offers remote access to professional telescopes around the nation.

Nearly 400 years ago, using some of the first optical telescopes, Galileo observed the moon’s phases, the solar system, and the Milky Way. Galileo’s sketches and calculations are examples of an important branch of contemporary astronomy called scientific visualization which is used in many fields and incorporates elements of graphic design to help scientists gain a deeper understanding of their targets of study.

This camp will focus on visualization as it relates to space and will give young learners skills that can translate to fields of science and graphic design.
