Astro Camp

The NASA Stennis Space Center Office of STEM Engagement's 2018 Stennis ASTRO CAMP® is a series of week-long summer camps held in June and July (excluding the week of July 4th) for children in grade levels 2nd through 10th.  The theme for this year’s ASTRO CAMP® is “Together We Go Farther…Moon…Mars…&Beyond!”  The goal of NASA’s Astro Camp® is to provide opportunities for learners to engage in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) educational activities that capitalize on NASA’s unique assets, content, and ASTRO CAMP® methodology to expose the next generations to STEM career possibilities aligned with NASA’s Human Exploration Organization (HEO) initiatives.

Astro Camp® is a challenging, science based non-residential series of camps designed to:

  • Inspire future generations to learn about space explorations and Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics developing pathways to STEM careers;
  • Present nationally aligned math and science principles through fun, hands-on activities, teaching teams of campers to work together to complete missions through ASTRO CAMP® methodology;
  • Integrate NASA’s unique resources through visits to the NASA Center or Visitors Center, presentations and demonstrations from NASA scientists, engineers, or educators, and immersion into current NASA missions;
  • Spark student’s interest in learning the basics of engineering, rocketry, robotics, and supporting the NGSS alignments while having fun.
