Young Astronauts Summer Camp | July 25-29, 2011


The 2011 session of Young Astronauts introduced students entering 4th and 5th grade to the space travel experience. Campers not only learned about how space travel is conducted by institutions like NASA but also how entering space affects the human body. Activities from the week included building and launching model rockets, creating personalized space suits, and going on a mission to the International Space Station via the Challenger Learning Center's space mission simulator.
