Campwide Briefings

December 9-13

December is ASTRONOMY Month at Camp Internet!

PLUS New Fall/Winter Student Showcases Open

Bring your class and fellow teacher’s classrooms online for the Astronomy DIG!  And tell us what constellations you can see in your Night Sky.

We will be opening our dig this week, December 12-13 to all interested classrooms and invite you to bring your colleagues online to share this fun project with their students. They can learn about the moon of their birth month, ancient observatories, the planets in our solar system and more!

The DIG is open all week in the members-only section that registered Campers have password access to, and then a special room opens to the public Dec 12-13.
