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.

Moon Camp is divided in three separate categories featuring different levels of complexity: Moon Camp Discovery, Moon Camp Explorers and Moon Camp Pioneers.

Be creative and start designing your own Moon Camp now!

Teams design one component of the Moon Camp using Tinkercad. Once they upload their design, they will receive a Moon Camp participation certificate.

Complexity level: beginners
Tool: Tinkercad
Age range: up to 19 years old, but recommended 6 to 14 years old
Registrations: open from 16 September 2020 to 22 April 2021
