DesignWorks Summer Academy has been called an “immersive, intensive, team-driven, college level experience”, and we’d agree. If you know a high school junior, who would like to learn the impact design has in the world then we invite them to attend DesignWorks Summer Academy.

Participants will experience hands-on creative projects led by expert faculty from the College of Architecture and Planning who encourage expansion of their ideas. The “let’s try it” environment of DesignWorks Summer Academy is similar to Ball State’s first year program for new freshmen and includes a variety of activities in the college studio setting.

Learn more about the DesignWorks experience and how to apply for admission at bsu.edu/cap/designworks or contact Melanie Smith at msmith@bsu.edu or 765-285-5862.

Saturn & Beyond  (NEW!)
Saturn’s rings are one of the most beautiful sights in the solar system. They can be seen clearly even with a small backyard telescope. Astronomers have known about these rings for over 400 years, yet they still present many questions. In 2004 the Cassini orbiter and the Huygens probe reached Saturn. During this show we will explore the mysterious features seen by these spacecraft.

Travel to distant stars and fly up to exotic planets and see them up close in the planetarium. Experience the science shifting our perspectives on humanity’s place in the cosmos.
