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

The name of our camp is The Sumerians.

The main purpose of this camp is to provide an environment for detailed exploration on the Moon and to provide a habitable environment for astronauts to continue their research more comfortably.

The Discovery Group consists of 2 people.

The building includes:

Control room


Study room

Storage room (food, drinks, etc.)


operating room

Electric room (For storing and distributing electricity)

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

We chose this place because the ice, which is the source of water, is densely located in the polar region.

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

We will build the important parts of our camp that need to be carefully protected with special materials that we will bring from the world. But most of our camp is planned to be built from lunar soil (lunar regolith).


Our spacecraft is designed to break up and collect ice. Our spacecraft will collect the ice and deposit it in a pool. Melting ice will go to a special water treatment device through pipes and will be turned into clean water by getting rid of all harmful substances. Some of the water will be used as electrolysis.

In the beginning, it will be provided by the food we bring from the world until agriculture. Agriculture will be done with lunar soil, the water will be supplied from the treated tank. After the plants grow, the obtained nutrients will be stored and stored. When necessary, it will be taken from the warehouse and renewed.

Since electricity is so important and will be used in many jobs, we plan to generate electricity in two ways:
1- Solar panels (most of them are planned to be met from here)
2- Conversion of hydrogen into electricity [As its cost is high, it is planned to obtain a sparse part of the energy (around 15%) from here]

The energy I get from here will be stored with the help of batteries. The stored electricity will be transported by cables to be used when needed.

Conversion of hydrogen obtained by electrolysis of the water we obtained into electricity and oxygen; As a result of photosynthesis of plants and Alps, it is planned to store oxygen in order to use it where necessary.

Metor is resistant to snow due to the design we have made and the materials we use. The materials we use from radiation are designed to repel radiation.
