Rediscover the Moon Camp Challenge

The 2023-2024 edition is bringing you a new and enhanced Moon Camp Challenge! Take on a new space adventurer role with your team and design a habitat on the lunar surface or go beyond the Moon and explore other worlds in our Solar System.

Join the Moon Camp Challenge and design your project related to the human exploration of space in this more flexible and open format.

Your project can range from:

  • a scientific experiment
  • a hands-on project
  • a design of space infrastructures
  • a 3D design of an astronaut base
  • a 3D printed model
  • a virtual or augmented reality world

 … and much more!!

Select the topic and format that best fits your team and get creative!

All teams that submit a project will receive a participation certificate and will be invited to participate in a final online event with an ESA astronaut and space experts.

Moon Camp is a partnership between ESA (with its ESERO network) and the Airbus Foundation, in collaboration with Autodesk.

How to start

Exploring space is about travelling farther and coming back with new experiences and knowledge to help us on Earth. Humankind will benefit from the new discoveries, ambitions, science, inspiration, and challenges.

When designing a space habitat teams need to adapt their design to the environment, consider the use of local resources and provide protection and living and working facilities for the astronauts.

Start your project
Plan your space habitat with your team and submit your project
Choose your space location
Decide where your habitat is going to be located in the Solar System
Choose your design tools and techniques
Decide how you would like to create your project
