As part of our efforts to work with the formal education community (that is, generally K-12 schools), the Chandra EPO team works with the National Science Olympiad.

The Chandra Astrophysics Institute (CAI), a Chandra X-ray Observatory-sponsored program run by the MIT Kavli Institute for Astrophysics and Space Research, is intended for students from the Boston area from a wide range of academic backgrounds with a limited opportunity to directly experience authentic science. Students may be interested in exploring a science career, or looking to develop research, technology and collaboration skills valuable for college or work in ANY field.
