At camp you will study aerodynamics by constructing homemade air balloons, bottle rockets and hovercrafts, among other projects. In the civil engineering session, you will work in teams to build the tallest building, create a newspaper dome, drop an egg safely from a given height and solve other engineering challenges.

Want to discover what it's like to be a space geologist? Through experiments and other fun activities you'll learn about moon rocks and other fascinating geological features of the solar system.
