The Rescue of College Park Airport
In the 1950s and 1960s, College Park Airport almost ceased to exist. Neglected and run-down, it seemed to many to have lost any purpose or use to the community. But thanks to a decades-long effort by tireless private citizens, College Park Airport was saved. This exhibit is their story—not only of saving a historic site and returning an airport to life, but also of their vision of the airport being a center of education and inspiration.

Capture the Colorful Cosmos
These photos are the culmination of a 6-week long workshop taken by students at Beltsville Community Center. During the course, students learned how to use robotic telescopes made available online by the Harvard-Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory, to take images of a variety of celestial objects. Using the MicroObservatory software, students were able to process their images using many of the same techniques used by professional photographers.
