Summer Space Camp – Registration Now Open! – Planes, robots, stars, and rocket failures – on purpose – are on tap for the Summer 2018 lineup of Rocketeer Academy camps at the New Mexico Museum of Space History. “Space exploration is tough – that’s why it’s called rocket science,” said Museum Executive Director Chris Orwoll. “For Summer 2018, we’re very excited to add a challenging new activity to our programs – Rocket Science Investigators. Developed in conjunction with the Center for the Advancement of Space Safety and Mission Assurance Research (CASSMAR), this program will engage kids in learning how aerospace engineers learn from failure so they can design better rockets and spacecraft.” Other camp sessions will cover astronomy, aviation, and robotics for students entering grades K-9. Summer camp weekly programs begin on the first Monday in June and continue into July. Along with other activities, each cadet builds and launches their own model rocket. Sessions for grades 4 and above include a field trip and museum sleepover. Lunch is provided for all programs.

For more information about Rocketeer Academy’s Summer Camp 2018, visit the museum website or call the education department. Contact 575-437-2840 or visit www.nmspacemusuem.org for more information.
