Astronaut Academy

As an astronaut preparing for your mission, you will explore robotics and rocketry and aviation as you prepare for your first mission!  Campers will fly a full Space Mission, visit the e-Planetarium, and fly planes with our flight simulators.  Campers will keep the robot they assemble and the rocket they construct and launch.

Rocket Camp

Be a rocket scientist! Learn how to build and launch rockets!  Campers will keep the rockets they construct; if your rocket goes too high and is not recovered, we will provide you with another rocket kit before you leave camp.  Each camp constructs different rockets, and the Advanced Camp will construct a different rocket every summer.  Campers registering for Fundamentals and Intro do not need prior rocketry experience; campers registered for Intermediate and Advanced should have some prior rocketry experience.  Campers are encouraged to bring sunglasses to wear during rocket launches.

Robotics Camp

Build a robot to keep every day!  Each camp builds different robots.  All camps will also work with Mindstorm EV3 robots.  (Students will not be allowed to keep the robots constructed with the Mindstorm kits.)  Campers registering for Intro do not need prior robotics experience; campers registering for Intermediate should have some prior robotics experience.
