  • Camp Enchanted Hills, Petaluma, CA — Workshop 8

    The eighth workshop run by Knowledge Unbounded on 2/8/2022 is the first in a series of three with the Enchanted Hills Camp in California. It encompassed an exploration of the various sections of the universe, zooming out from a microscopic view on Earth to a macroscopic view of the cosmos. Attendees learned about their location in the universe, and modern breakthroughs in research accessibility.

  • Camp Enchanted Hills, Petaluma, CA — Workshop 9

    The ninth workshop run by Knowledge Unbounded on 3/7/2022 is the second in a series of three with the Enchanted Hills Camp in California. It encompassed an exploration of galactic astrophysics, developing Hubble’s Tuning Fork classification scheme for galaxy morphology, and discussing theories of galaxy formation. Attendees learned about the future of galaxies, and potential pathways to contribute to researching the same.

  • Camp S.E.E., Charlotte, NC – Workshops 6 & 7

    Knowledge Unbounded ran the third and fourth 1-hour workshops presenting to the students at the Camp S.E.E. After School Camp for the visually impaired on the 8th of November, 2021. Students learned about dark matter and the composition of the universe and interacted with tactile models simulating the detection of dark matter in the cosmos

  • Camp S.E.E., Charlotte, NC – Workshop 5

    Knowledge Unbounded ran the second of four 1-hour workshops presenting to the students at the Camp S.E.E. After-School Camp for the visually impaired on the 11th of October, 2021. Students gained an intuitive introduction to relativity as well as a discussion of the fundamental structure of spacetime in the universe.

  • Camp S.E.E., Charlotte, NC – Workshop 4

    Knowledge Unbounded ran the first of four 1-hour workshops presenting to the students at the Camp S.E.E. After-School Camp for the visually impaired on the 4th of October, 2021. Students learned about the scale of the universe as well as the basic concepts of extragalactic astrophysics. Students were introduced to astrophysics research for the visually impaired.

  • Camp Enchanted Hills, Petaluma, CA – Workshops 2 & 3

    Knowledge Unbounded conducted a 2-part symposium in connection with Dr. Henry Wedler (https://www.hobywedler.com/) on the 31st of July, 2021 at the Enchanted Hills Camp run by the Lighthouse Foundation for the Blind. Students were given a tour through the universe, learning about each of the planets within the Solar System, and experienced a tactile/auditory journey through advanced astrophysics research techniques such as dark matter detection.

  • Camp S.E.E., Winston-Salem, NC – Workshop 1

    Knowledge Unbounded conducted a 1-hour workshop presenting to students at the Camp S.E.E. Summer Camp for the visually impaired on the 27th of June, 2021. Students learned about our place in the Solar System, the organization of the planets and their relative sizes, the development of the galaxy and the Hubble Tuning Fork galaxy classification system, and sophisticated methods of exoplanet detection.
