Capture the Colorful Cosmos is a program developed by the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory which uses the Microobservatory Telescope Network to give teens opportunities to learn STEM skills in an engaging and creative way. Workshop participants will capture images of astronomical subjects using robotic telescopes stationed in Arizona and Massachusetts. The same techniques used by professional astronomers will be learned and used to produce full-color renderings of distant star clusters, galaxies, nebulae, moons, and planets. Digital media production techniques will also be learned and used by teens to assemble their works into a personalized digital media portfolio and collections of these works will be displayed publicly in the lobby of the Gottlieb Planetarium at Union Station and at Kansas City Public Library branches.

Thanks to funding from the Smithsonian Youth Access Grant program awarded to Science City through the Smithsonian Affiliations Program and the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory, Science City will be offering this workshop series free of charge to registered participants willing to commit to participating in an eight-hour workshop series hosted in Science City's Engineerium.

Saturdays, November 10th 2:00pm to 6:00pm November 17th 3:00 to 7:00pm
