IAYC – The International Astronomical Youth Camp is a fantastic opportunity if a week long summer school is too short but an 8 week internship is too long. Every year the camp takes place in a different European country and is a wonderful way to meet students from all over the world whilst delving into a research project. The camp lasts for three weeks and is so addictive that I have attended 6 camps thus far.
ISEC – The International Science Engagement Camp offers astronomy as well as other scientific projects, for 15-22 year olds. It lasts for two weeks and will be in the mountains of Barcelona in July, 2018.
