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.
Our moon base will be an inverted tower. We will raise chickens and fish. The chickens are raised with vegetables, which are grown one floor above. The water comes from the lowest floor, we take ice with a special drill and slowly melt it. We use water for astronauts, for chickens and for crops.
The base will be self-sufficient, we will produce water, food and oxygen without any help from the Earth.
Where do you want to build your Moon Camp?
Close to the lunar poles
Why did you choose this location?
The base will be near the north pole of the moon So we will have constant sunshine
How do you plan to build your Mooncamp? Which materials will you use?
We will use the moon floor to build. We have to dig inside the moon. For the floors, we will use polyethylene, to protect against meteorites.
For water, we will dig with a special drilling machine to find ice, and we just use it to make water.
For food, we will breed fishes and chickens. We’ll also cultivate fruits, vegetables and seaweed.
For energy, we’ll produce it in a large quantity with four photovoltaic panels placed on the moon’s floor.
For air, we will take some air cylinders, so the plants (seaweed, trees…) will make air with the CO2.
For protection, the floor of the base will be constructed with 40cm of polyethylene, to be protected against meteorite.
Describe a day on the Moon for one of your Moon Camp astronauts
The astronaut will be like a tourist, he can wake up whenever he wants. Then he must test gravity by experimenting with drops, water, vegetables. For lunch, the astronaut must choose between different experiences: insect, blob, vegetable lunar. During the day, he goes to the moon to do research. At the end of the day, he dives to contact Earth and report back.
