Moon Camp Discovery

NEW submission deadline extended: 22 April 2021, 23h59 CEST

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.

Project description

Project Midgard is a thorough model designed for the next moon exploration, experimentation and research development that will be built near the North Pole using deployable materials from earth, covered with lunar soil on all the surface base facilities including all the systems. Tunnels leads to underground levels to withstand the radiation from outer space and the Sun. A control room will be built at the center of our moon camp as it is the heart of the facilities, for our moon base to work efficiently. It is versatile with six floors, each of which has its own purpose.
