June 10: Imaging the World Around Us
Photography is an excellent tool for capturing observations of the world around us. The process of taking a picture can help us focus and observe things that we have never noticed before. We invite you to join us alongside guest experts as we learn about their processes of observation and challenge you to explore everyday things in a new way.

June 17: Imaging Out of this World
How can we use photography to observe things that are out of this world. From imaging other stars and planets, to looking back down at the Earth itself, imaging can teach us a lot about our universe. We invite you to join us along side guest experts as we explore what they learn from imaging objects at a very large scale and introduce ways that you too can explore space through photography.

June 24: From Micro to Astro - Learning Through Photography
Just as we have challenged you to take images and make observations, our guest panelists from throughout this month have also been asked to create images at scales outside of their expertise. With our guest host, Creative Director of MIT News Christine Daniloff, our panelists will return to share their results, discuss their experiences, and provide tips and tricks.
