Moon Camp Explorers Gallery 2021-2022

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

Our Moon camp is called “Star Base Camp” and it’s provided for people who come to explore the moon such as astronauts. Since it is big, five people maximum can stay in it and it has all what is necessary for communication with the earth; also, it provides water, food, power, air and protection which are the main things to able to survive on the moon.

On the terrain of the moon, you can find three necessary rooms which are connected to each other: the middle one is called the green house which also has the main entrance. On the right, there is a control room which has water, oxygen and electricity controls and a communication room. On the left, there is a laboratory room. Around these 3 main rooms, there is ice, solar panels, antennas and a place for the rocket.

Most of the underground rooms are found in the base. There are four big dormitories which are also connected to each other, so that the person can go to different rooms. Each dormitory is divided into two sections of two rooms. In total there are eight rooms which are: Bedrooms, Bathrooms, kitchen, meeting room, library, lounge, infirmary and gym.

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

We chose this location because it’s the best place to provide water resources which are very necessary for humans. The poles of the moon can preserve a surprising record of water also it is a very good place for the communication with the earth and in this place, there is a very large space for the rocket and main resources.

How do you plan to build your Mooncamp? Which materials will you use?

We plan to build our moon camp very big with many rooms. To do it, we used lots of materials such as: glass for the transparent windows so that the astronauts can see through it, also, so that the plants in the greenhouse would reach the sun.

We used solid metal to build the big dormitories so that they wouldn’t break, and we used plastic for some objects such as the tables and chairs.


Water: On the terrain of the moon, there is a large amount of ice. We collect it then take it to the water control room where we must melt it. Finally, after having melted water, we take it to the laboratory to recycle it by using filter materials so that we obtain a good resource of water.

Food: Food can be obtained from the greenhouse by growing plants that will provide lots of fruit, vegetables and even nuts which are good and healthy for the human body.

Power and electricity: The solar panels and the antennas can provide energy and electricity for this moon camp also they will help with communication with the earth.

Air: On the moon there is no good air to breathe. That’s why we created a greenhouse in our camp that will provide oxygen to the astronauts staying there. Plants can take carbon dioxide and release oxygen in the air from their leaves.

Protection: All rooms are protected with a transparent glass.

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

At 6:00 am: The astronaut can wake up and have his breakfast

From 7:00 am until 8:00 am: He goes to the control room, checks electricity, water control and oxygen control.

From 8:00 am until 10:00 am: He goes to the gym and works out

From 11 am until 12 pm: Goes to the laboratory

From 1 pm until 3 pm: Goes to the control room again to communicate with the earth and to see if there are important news from there.

3:30 pm: Meets with the other people on the moon camp in the meeting room to discuss together.

From 4 pm until 6 pm: He goes to the library to read or goes to the infirmary to check if he is maintaining a good health.

From 7 pm until 8 pm: Goes to the kitchen and bakes food

From 8:30 until 9:30 pm: He eats in the dining room and chills in the lounge.

From 10 until 11 pm: He showers, goes to the toilet then finally goes to bed.
