From living and working in space to tasting real space food – this camp has it all. Students will learn all about rocketry and propulsion then they will put those skills to the test by building a real model rocket.**
Students will be placed on teams of about 12 participants and will focus on an engineering design project for a mission to Mars. Groups will learn all about space travel to the red planet – Mars, and what it takes for a mission to be successful. They will understand why it takes 6 to 9 months to reach Mars, and what astronauts must do to survive in space. Special guest presenters/instructors will come from NASA in the USA.
