Freshwater Academy is a week-long camp that gives high school students the opportunity for hands-on experience and fieldwork in Northwestern Pennsylvania's waterways. Students spend their days studying biology and freshwater ecology at a level they can't achieve in the classroom. They will get wet, they will get dirty, and they will love it!

On Wednesday night we went to see stars, planets, satellites and other celestial body we could find. Our guide was the Allegheny professor Jamie Lombardi. First we went to a building roof to try to locate different bodies. We could see Venus and other planets. Then we left that building and went to the observatory, where they had 2 bigger telescopes. Professor Lombardi showed us some different stars and constelations. Finally he showed us a pair of stars, that were shining in different colors. It was a really nice thing to do...
