Submission deadline extended to 7 May: due to the corona virus (COVID-19) situation and the safety and containment measures around the world, Moon Camp Challenge teams now have the possibility to submit their project until 7 May 2020.
Moon Camp Pioneers projects will also be accepted in .f3z format.
Moon Camp is an education project run in collaboration between ESA and the Airbus Foundation, in partnership with Autodesk. It uses innovative learning technologies to challenge students to design their own Moon settlement with a 3D modelling tool (Tinkercad or Fusion 360).
Teams first have to develop a number of scientific interdisciplinary experiments to explore the extreme environment of space and understand how astronauts could live on the Moon. Then they have to design their Moon Camp, which should be adapted to the Moon environment, consider the use of local resources and provide protection and living and working facilities for the astronauts.
Moon Camp is divided in three separate categories featuring different levels of complexity: Moon Camp Discovery, Moon Camp Explorers and Moon Camp Pioneers.
The Moon Camp Challenge is an educational and inspirational programme that uses innovative learning technologies to challenge students to design their own Moon settlement with a 3D modelling tool (Tinkercad or Fusion 360).
The Moon Camp Challenge is divided in three separate categories featuring different levels of complexity: Moon Camp Discovery (beginners), Moon Camp Explorers (intermediate) and Moon Camp Pioneers (advanced).
Moon Camp Discovery: Open from 4 November 2019 to 25 March 2020 (deadline extended)
Moon Camp Explorers: Open from 6 January 2020 to 25 March 2020
Moon Camp Pioneers: Open from 6 January 2020 to 25 March 2020
To enter the challenge you must be part of a team of 2 to 6 students supported by a teacher or educator. You have to create an account and submit your design and report using the online submission platform.
Teams are allowed to submit their project(s) to both Moon Camp Discovery and Moon Camp Explorers or Pioneers.
Each participant can only be part of one team and can only submit one project to Moon Camp Explorers or Pioneers.
Participation is open worldwide to teams of students aged up to 18 years old. Teams must be comprised of a minimum of 2 up to a maximum of 6 students and must be supported by a teacher or educator. Students attending a postsecondary/tertiary institution are not eligible to apply.
Moon Camp Discovery is a non-competitive mission. All teams that submit an entry that complies with the guidelines will be granted a participation certificate.
For the Moon Camp Explorers and Moon Camp Pioneers a jury composed of ESA, Airbus Foundation and Autodesk experts will select the finalist teams and winners based on the criteria defined in the guidelines.
All teams will receive a participation certificate. The winning teams of the Moon Camp Explorers and Moon Camp Pioneers will receive a 3D printer, goodies and the opportunity to participate in a live webinar with an ESA's astronaut.
Your Moon Camp Discovery project can not be withdrawn after submission.
Your Moon Camp Explorers or Moon Camp Pioneers project can be edited up to the deadline. After the deadline, the project can not be withdrawn.
