St. Edward’s University is delighted to work with Higher Orbits to host its first Go-for-Launch camp this summer, 11 – 13 July. Teams of high school and college students will learn leadership skills and teamwork. An astronaut will be in residence for the entirety of the camp. With the help of all the mentors, student teams will design an experiment for the International Space Station (ISS). A panel of experts will judge the student proposals, and the winning project will be built, flown to the ISS, and conducted on the ISS. If the launch occurs in the USA, the winning team will receive an invitation to attend (travel costs not included — but seeing a rocket launch is really cool).
The cost of the three-day camp is $250, which includes lunch and snacks each day. This is a day camp only (no housing).
Note that scholarships will be available, and there is an option on the registration form to register for as little as $10 with a commitment to fundraise with Higher Orbits partners (PopCorn Factory and FannieMae)!
For those of you who are NOT students, we are still recruiting mentors for the camp. Contact Dean Morris for more information.
