The 2016 Sensing Our World summer camp program for middle school students is now open for registration. This camp gives students the opportunity to learn about science through hands-on activities. This year we will be exploring Mars! Together, we will discover the challenging environmental conditions that scientists will have to overcome to undertake a successful manned mission to Mars. We will imagine different engineering solutions to these challenges and create our own model mission. Finally, we will reflect on the community values and services needed to create a successful long-term habitat on Mars.

There are two sessions offered this summer: July 11-15 and July 18-22.

Each session runs Monday through Friday, 9:00am-4:00pm, and includes daily lunch.
