SPACE EXPLORERS AND ROCKET SCIENTISTS - AGES 8 TO 13 - Become someone with "THE RIGHT STUFF" Become a rocket scientist- build and launch rockets! It doesn’t get much more fun than building and launching your very own model rocket. That’s what you’ll be doing when you come to the Renaissance SPACE Summer Camps. Whether you’re 8 or 13, experienced in rocket building or not, you will get your chance to watch your rocket soar into the air. During the week we will be building and launching several types of rockets. Astronauts last visited the Moon in 1972. NASA plans to send the next man and the first woman to the surface of the Moon by 2024. They will work at the Moon's South Pole. Just like the astronauts, our campers and future explorers of the galaxy will be engaged totally in fun and exciting space missions that provide educational opportunities in physics, rocketry, astronomy, and math. Our future Space Explorers will even use technology to design and construct a futuristic Martian colony, Campers will experience the science and technology concepts behind space flight. Learning and experimenting with electrical circuits, a space flight simulation, architecture and building projects, and the physics of space travel, campers will design, experiment, and problem-solve with computer programs and hands-on projects. Campers will be immersed in the following programs and kits: Roblox Game Design Studio– Space travel and space station design Estes Rocketry – Real building and launching of rockets! littleBits – Electrical engineering and how it applies to innovation 3D Printing-Design your one of a kind spaceship, print and take home Campers will create and fly rockets and also have the chance to build and customize their own space station using Roblox’s incredible game design studio! They will customize and design their own spaceship, 3D print it and take it home! Blast off with us this summer and explore the galaxy!
