The 2021-2022 edition of the Moon Camp Challenge will be launched 15 September. Stay tuned!
Moon Camp is an education project run in collaboration between ESA and the Airbus Foundation, in partnership with Autodesk. It uses innovative learning technologies to challenge students to design their own Moon settlement with a 3D modelling tool (Tinkercad or Fusion 360).
Teams first have to develop a number of interdisciplinary experiments to explore the extreme environment of space and understand how astronauts could live on the Moon. Then they have to design their Moon Camp, which should be adapted to the Moon environment, consider the use of local resources and provide protection and living and working facilities for the astronauts.
Our lunar orbital space station consists of two parts. The first part is the mother station which includes all the facilities that the astronauts need to operate around the moon. On this station there is a blue big tank that produces oxygen for the people inside it. There is also a rocket-like space shuttle that transports the astronauts, and everything they need, between the earth and the station.There is also a second space station that will work as a shelter in case the astronauts need to abandon the mother ship. This emergency space station has its own evacuation vehicle.This project was created by the first group of our club, in the Experimental School of the University of Thessaloniki – Elementary School(Greece).
