Astro-Science Workshop (ASW) is a fun, intensive, program about space exploration designed for high school students in the Chicago area. ASW began more than 50 years ago during the space race and the Apollo program, and counts numerous scientists, engineers, business leaders, and a former NASA astronaut as alumni.
ASW encourages participants to consider pursuing careers in
science by offering the unique opportunity to work with astronomers, engineers, and educators at the Adler Planetarium. This year’s program will focus on hands-on opportunities related to telescope observing, light pollution, and high-altitude ballooning.
