Space Camp, is a hands on, interactive programme to inspire, motivate and empower school students. The five days programme is conducted at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center's facility in Huntsville, Alabama. The U.S. Space and Rocket Center is the Official Visitor Complex for NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center, which plays a crucial role in propulsion, engineering, science, space operations, and project and programme management for NASA.

Space Camp is available for students from the ages of 9 to 18. The programme is age specific and has three variants

Space Camp: For students between 9 - 11 years of age

Space Academy: For students between 12 - 14 years of age

Advanced Space Academy: For students between 14 - 18 years of age

At Space Camp students won't just hear about the work of astronauts and aerospace professionals, they will experience it first-hand! They will learn about spacecraft, aerodynamics, microgravity, robotics, rocket launching and extra-terrestrial travel through classroom sessions, practical activities, simulators and more. The culmination of the programme is a space mission that involves application of the knowledge they have gained and the training they have received during the course of the programme.

The programme will not only show students the practical applications of the concepts of science and mathematics but also develop their leadership, communication, problem-solving and teamwork skills through challenging outdoor activities.

As part of this programme students will participate in the following activities/sessions.

Lifting off at four times the normal force of gravity and experiencing weightlessness on the Space Shot TM simulator.

Learning how it feels like to walk on the moon with the 1/6 Gravity Chair simulator.

Building their own rocket and launching it from the Rocket Launch facility.

Tumbling and spinning in the Multi-Axis Trainer, just like astronauts from the early space programmes.

Experiencing a frictionless environment in the Manned Manoeuvring Unit

Lifting off in one of Space Camp's Shuttle Simulators, or commanding and support everything from the Mission Control Center.

Living and working in Space Camp's International Space Station simulator.

Mission Specialists will experience walking "in space" on an EVA (Extra Vehicular Activity) to repair the Hubble Space Telescope. (Space Academy and Advanced Space Academy only)

Living and working in space, operating the Station's life support, crew/equipment support systems. (Space Academy and Advanced Space Academy only)

Performing scientific experiments focusing on polymers and soil samples from Earth, Mars, and the moon. (Space Academy and Advanced Space Academy)

In depth SCUBA training for Mission Specialist track trainees. (Advanced Space Academy only)

During the course of the Space Camp programme, students will stay in dormitories on site of the programme. These dormitories are comfortable and well equipped and are designed to replicate the accommodation provided to astronauts.

Practical applications of science topics such as Newton’s laws of motion, friction, thrust, gravitational force, centre of mass and centre of gravity, conductors and insulators, chemical properties of elements etc.
Principles of Rocket Design

Basics of Astronomy

Leadership Skills

Team Building Skills

Communication Skills

Logical Analysis and Critical Thinking

All meals during the programme will be provided at the Space Camp facility. Vegetarian options are available. However, Indian food may not be available.

Space University from Frontiers Edutainment is a five day intensive programme of learning and discovery, and a once in a lifetime opportunity for students to visit NASA’s Johnson Space Center.

Students participating in this programme will spend five days at Space Center Houston, the official visitor's Complex of NASA's Johnson Space Center.

The Space University programme at Space Center Houston will bring to life the concept of science and maths that students have studied in their textbooks. During the programme students will :

As part of this programme students will participate in the following activities/sessions.
work on innovative projects involving robotics and rocketry
meet NASA experts who will share their knowledge and expertise
take exclusive tours of the labs and facilities at NASA's Johnson Space Center
train like astronauts in a pool using scuba diving equipment
make presentations to NASA educators
watch space shows and space movies

Projects
The Space University programme at Space Center Houston will place students in the shoes of NASA scientists and engineers. Under the guidance of Space Center instructors, students will work on projects that replicate the activities that scientists and engineers perform on a typical NASA mission. These projects could involve robotics, rocketry monitoring of a habitat, experiments with high pressure and temperature and experiments to understand how things work in a micro-gravity environment.

NASA Tours
Students get a rare opportunity to tour the Johnson Space Center and visit the training facilities of NASA astronauts. These include the Astronaut Training Facility and the Neutral Buoyancy Lab or NBL in short. The Astronaut Training Facility contains detailed and life size mock up of the Space Shuttle and International Space Station components. The NBL is the world's largest indoor pool and has a replica of the International Space Station at the bottom of the pool. This lab is used to train astronauts in a simulated micro-gravity environment before they launch into space. Students will also visit the Historic Mission Control and the rocket garden to see the famed Saturn V moon rocket.

Students will get an opportunity to participate in various interactive shows that are conducted at Space Center Houston. These include the "Living in Space" Show and the "Blast Off Theater". These shows teach students about how astronauts cope with the difficulties of living in space and about NASA's current missions.

Student Presentations
With the objective of inculcating a spirit of teamwork and improving their communication skills, student teams are required to make presentations on space related topics to the Space University instructors and their peers. Each presentation is grade based on the content, delivery style and timing.

Scuba Diving Activity
Working with an expert NASA diver who trains astronauts at NASA’s Neutral Buoyancy Lab, students will receive training and participate in a scuba diving activity conducted at a pool to replicate the experience of working in a micro gravity environment.

NASA Experts
During the course of the programme, senior scientists and engineers who are currently working on the space programme will come and visit students to share their knowledge and expertise.
Topics for some of the expert sessions include The Space Shuttle, NASA Robotics, The Space Suit, Space Physiology and the International Space Station.

Key Learning Aspects:
Participants at the Space University Programme at Space Center Houston can expect to learn the following
Practical applications of science topics such as Newton’s laws of motion, friction, thrust, gravitational force, centre of mass and centre of gravity, reflectance spectrometers, sources of energy.
Rocket design principles
Space suit design and survival in extreme conditions
Team work
Presentation skills
Financial budgeting
Project management

Graduation Ceremony
Each participant in the Space University programme will receive a certificate from Space Center Houston and the best team will win trophies.
