Official Maryland Day website

Here are the events that we held:

  • Supernova Spin-Art -- Join the AstroTerps and make spin-art supernovae.

  • Mission Madness -- The universe is closer than you think. It begins right here in Maryland at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center. Stop by to explore some of the mission partnerships between the UM's College of Computer, Mathematical and Physical Sciences and NASA Goddard. Learn how we work together to study Earth, our solar system and beyond. You'll find out what it takes to design, build and launch the spacecraft that provide humankind with exciting discoveries about Earth and our universe.

  • Solar Observing -- Take a safe look at the big yellow (or red, depending on the filter) ball in our sky through telescopes with observatory staff.

  • What's Next in Astronomy? -- Come meet our astronomers and graduate students and let this celestial department guide you into the future!


We hope you came and enjoyed "Exploring Our World!"
