Moon Camp Discovery

Registrations are closed

In the future, to enable astronauts to stay on the Moon for long periods of time, new infrastructures must be developed to overcome important challenges. Such challenges include protection from radiation and meteorites, energy production, the extraction and recycling of water, food production and much more. The Moon Camp Challenge invites students to explore the Moon and decode some of the complexities future astronauts may face.

In Moon Camp Discovery each team’s mission is to 3D design only one component of a Moon Camp using Tinkercad. Teams can choose to design a:

– Lunar lander

– Moon Base

– Lunar rover

– Rocket

– Lunar Orbital Space Station


The design should be adapted to the Moon environment and if possible consider the use of local resources, provide protection and/or living and working facilities for the astronauts.

Moon Camp Discovery is a non-competitive mission for beginners. All teams that submit an entry that complies with the guidelines will receive a participation certificate and their project will be shared on the Moon Camp online platform.


Who can participate?

Participation is open worldwide to students aged up to 19 years old. Moon Camp Discovery is recommended for students aged 6 to 14 years old. Participating students must be supported by a teacher, educator or parent.

Team: ROC’s BASE

Project description

In the base live one family and in the future evolution to one tribe or clan and we put one parliamentary system.
The moon base has one chicken coops and one hydroponic crop for food.

We have water with one excavator that extracts soil because the moon soil has water.
After we take the water and we connect two iron bars in one pila and insere in the water and we have oxygen because we change the cells.

We decided that the best exercises for the moon are to run on the treadmill, lift weights and yoga.
