Moon Camp Explorers Gallery 2020-2021

In Moon Camp Explorers each team’s mission is to 3D design a complete Moon Camp using Tinkercad. They also have to explain how they will use local resources, protect astronauts from the dangerous of space and describe the living and working facilities.

Project description

This camp has a plantation place, it has a living place, a rocket ship and solar panels to get energy, this moon camp is designed to have everything you need.

Where do you want to build your Moon Camp?
Close to the Lunar Equator
Why did you choose this location?

This is an ideal place to build your camp so that is why it was chosen, most of the land is flat so it is really useful for building something like a space station. I also chose this because there is a lot of light that can give you more power with solar panels.

How do you plan to build your Moon Camp? Which materials would you use?

Bricks, Concrete, Metal, Glass. Glass is simply to see what is happening around you, and to make some kind of green house for the plantations. Bricks, and concrete is to make the building and the paths. Metal will be used for the rocket and other important parts of the space station to make is more secure than using concrete and bricks.

Explain how your Moon Camp will provide the astronauts with:

We will have a water filter, also there is water ice on the moon. Since that is happening you can collect water and filter it. When you finished to drink the water you will urinate it and then you can filter that to, you should have a good amount of water to survive.

Plantations/Crops you will need them for food. Once you have collected it you should replant it, making it renewable. You will also need water to use on the plants to help them grow. You should also have some lights so that the plants can grow.

Solar panels, on the moon you can have solar panels it basicly gives you full energy and it is the best way of getting power on the moon or any other planet.

Air comes from trees, plantations, and crops. If you have a big enough area to make your “farm” you should be able to have oxygen, when you leave the space station you will need to use the oxygen tanks.

Describe a day on the Moon for one of your Moon Camp astronauts

Probably, you would start off by eating food then make more food and water from the sources you have, so you dont run out of what you need to survive. Then you should probably go outside and collect objects, rocks etc. for scientific analysis, to help with research. Then you would probably do a space station test because if there is a problem like a hole for example in the space station, it could result in death.
