Join us for a fun-filled, hands-on adventure as we explore the science, engineering, and technology needed to explore Mars. Astronomy, rocketry, planetary science, mission planning and engineering, and space exploration technology are the basis for a week filled with interactive, experiential, fun activities.
Science Camp: Mission to Mars is a day camp and will run from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm, as well as a closing event for campers and their families on the final evening, where campers will present their group's Mission to Mars. Registration fee is $150 ($75 for qualifying campers - see registration for details). Campers must bring their own lunch.
Activities at camp are designed to be interactive, fun, and to provide opportunities for campers to use their imagination and skills to learn about space science as they plan a Mission to Mars. Campers will choose the goals of their mission, and the costs and technical challenges their mission presents as they learn about astronomy and planetary science, rockets and payloads, and about the history and future of space exploration. As an example, campers will build and launch model rockets, learn how to collect data and understand data about the rocket launches.
Space Camp: Mission to Mars is led by former NASA engineer Denisse Aranda, Program Director for Science Camps of America. Denisse worked on a number of NASA projects at the famous Langley Research Center, as well as serving as an NASA Education Specialist. Currently teaching at Kalaheo High School, Denisse will bring all of her experience and expertise to Space Camp: Mission to Mars this spring.
