Program Hiatus for 2022

January 27, 2022

While we hoped to resume in 2022, the COVID policies over Harvard and the Smithsonian are incompatible with the immersive community environment we hope to foster with our summer program. Please contact banneker@cfa.harvard.edu with any questions or concerns. 

Our intention is to return in 2023 with a program that serves the needs of the students in this program. You are invited to sign up for our email list to receive updates for the 2023 year.
