Letter: Excited about new interns

The Aspen Science Center is as excited as a Rydberg atom to announce the six wonderful interns who will be helping us bring fantastic science programming to the Roaring Fork Valley this summer. Arnold Muasa, Andrew Olson, Clayton Mickles, Linda Fischbacher, Will Orben and Will Pryor were chosen from our most competitive field to date and represent the best of the entire valley. They are students, athletes, pilots, roboticists and, of course, scientists.

Collectively we will bring you a series of science-based events including favorites like weekly Physics Barbecues (Wednesdays June 29 through Aug. 3), “Science of Music” (July 29 and Aug. 4 and 11), the Science Street Fair (Aug. 7) and Science Day Camps (Thursdays July 7 through 21 and Friday, July 29). We also will introduce exciting new programming like “Stars Over Aspen” in conjunction with the Aspen Center for Environmental Studies and Three Rivers Astronomy on Aug. 10.

Our mission is to advance the public understanding of science through lifelong discovery, exploration and education. We look forward to exploring and learning with you this summer. For more information, please visit our revamped website at or like us on Facebook at aspensciencecenter.
