Do you like challenges? Have you ever wondered what it would be like to feel the warmth of another star or breathe the air of a different planet?
Campers will stretch their problem solving skills, learn space science, and work with real data to find planets around other stars. They’ll then plan a mission and strive to send their team to a planet beyond our solar system in this combination role-play and academic camp with a focus on engineering and identification of exoplanets.
This immersive journey amidst our historic campus, simulates the processes that NASA and aerospace companies use to go to outer space.
Campers will prioritize mission goals, design space craft and instruments, choose a capable and diverse crew, and navigate funding and ethical challenges in this scenario to choose their planet and launch their Exoplanet Exploration.
