Come explore the world of Mars Exploration with us this summer!

For students entering grades 6-8 in the 2014-15 school year

Camp Dates: 9 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday July 14 - 25, 2014
at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs

Our newest offering for summer fun, the Mars Experience will bring all of the STEM subjects to life for campers interested in the possibility of future space flight! It will be a two week, full-day camp with extended days (9 am to 5 pm Monday-Friday), and will follow the format of our Exxon-Mobil Bernard Harris Summer Science Camp theme of Mars Exploration! Campers will build and test robots with LEGOs, create and test water filtration units and space suit fabrics, learn about rocket physics and so much more! The camp will also include weekly field trips that are space related, and will provide campers with an opportunity to learn about the science and technology used in space exploration & non-terrestrial colonization.

This camp requires a minimum of 20 students. The full fee is $750 for the 2-week camp, but parents only need to pay the $300 deposit online to hold a spot for their child. We will send a link 2-3 weeks before the camp begins for final payment. The deposit will be refunded if the camp is cancelled due to low enrollment, or by parent request up to 30 days before camp begins (June 13, 2014)
