This virtual camp offers a series of five hands-on space STEM activities for campers, taught by the Nebraska Space Ambassadors. Create your own mission patch, launch a straw rocket, build a Mars rover, and more.
These activities will be delivered remotely and are perfect for parents and guardians to participate in with their K-12 students.
The activity videos will be available on YouTube, with the links shared with each registered camper or teacher. Because of the virtual nature of the camp, there are not specific dates to attend. You may decide to either kickstart, or end the week by watching the Mars 2020 Perseverance Rover launch on its mission to Mars currently scheduled for July 30, 2020 from NASA's Kennedy Space Center.
