An Out-of-this-World Camp 

At this week-long, in-person camp, kids will participate in NASA-inspired engineering design challenges. 

Campers use creative and collaborative skills to design a mission patch, train like an astronaut, and solve real-world engineering problems using spinoff technology, just like NASA astronauts working together on a mission. 

They propose answers to questions like "How could space suit cooling tubes be used to solve a problem here on Earth? How could robotic arms help make our world a better place? 

Then, they create a storyboard and presentation to share their spinoff project and work on their science communication skills.
