As a students have stated on their final evaluations:

It was interesting to find out that there are many big mysteries that cosmologists and physicists are trying to figure out today.” “ I've heard the words dark energy, neutrino, CMB thrown around before, but now I have a basic idea about what they are. “ “I loved learning from experts and being able to ask the difficult questions that my high school teachers wouldn’t know.” “I learned so much about cosmology in general. The tours were awesome. It was great to be able to ask questions whenever you want. I had so much fun overall.”
