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.
This lunar base has everything necessary for astronauts to have a pleasant stay on the Moon.
The most important structure is the transparent dome of ultra-resistant glass, since in addition to protect us against possible impacts of meteorites or extra-terrestrial attacks, it is also responsible for retaining the oxygen generated by our genetically modified trees to produce oxygen as quickly as possible.
In addition to that, we also have intelligent solar panels, which turn towards the sun, like sunflowers, to obtain the highest possible amount of energy.
Using this energy, the ultraviolet lights in the greenhouse cause the plants to be exposed to light continuously, increasing the rate of food production.
Where do you want to build your Moon Camp?
Close to the lunar equator
Why did you choose this location?
Becauseitiswarmer at theequator and as themoontakes28 days (about 4 weeks)togoarounditself, thesunwillnot be shiningonitmostofthe time, so thebestthingto do isto be in the place whereitiswarmest.
How do you plan to build your Mooncamp? Which materials will you use?

In our big moon camp, we have a huge water treatment plant which is connected by pipes to the main structure to provide water for the astronauts.
We have the “Green House” that provide food for unlimited years if there are 7 or less astrounats. We can plant diverent types of food such as carrots (it’s the example), potatoes, fruit trees or even some tomates.
The solar panels built by Elon Musk himself have innovative technology. They are constantly searching for light, and to achieve this they use the new engines designed and assembled by Ford. Finally, the solar panels transform solar energy into electricity and transport it directly to the base.
Our oxygen generator does not rest, it is constantly producing oxygen.
Nuestro generador de oxígeno no descansa, está constantemente produciendo oxígeno.
Our best engineers have created a shield around the base to ensure safety and a comfortable stay on the moon. The shield is made of tempered glass with a thickness of 3 cm.
Nuestros mejores ingenieros han creado un escudo alrededor de la base para asegurar la seguridad y una confortante estancia en la luna. El escudo está hecho de vidrio templado con un grosor de 3 cm.
Describe a day on the Moon for one of your Moon Camp astronauts
The astronauts wake up soon in the morning. Then they have breakfast. For breakfast they have the only available food, carrots. After that they go to the laboratory to do some research on materials in the moon that can be used on different things. For example, new materials that are resistant to use in cars and other things.
After some hours of research, they go to the greenhouse to cultivate some more carrots. Taking advantage of that they already are in the greenhouse they pick some carrots for lunch. After that they have lunch. For lunch they have, again, carrots.
They continue with the research, but this time they don´t do lab research. Instead they explore the moon for food. When they return to the base, they go to sleep for around 9 hours.
