SPACE CAMP - ONLINE!
So many young people dream of a career in space, and going to space camp! However, access to space camp can seem out of reach for most. To give any student, anywhere the chance to attend space camp, I devised an online summer camp for space career exploration. Eleven middle and high school students joined from several different states for the opportunity to ‘test drive’ different space careers through immersive experiences of what people actually “do” in each career. Examples included hands-on aerospace engineering projects, an office tour with an astrophysics PhD student, creation of a Mars rover, and much more! Ultimately my goal is to provide space career exploration experiences that schools cannot, increasing student interest and participation in STEM to cultivate a new generation of innovators and creative thinkers.
