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

Antares – THE  NAME  OF  THE  LANDERLANDER  IS  DEDICATED  FROM ASTRONOMIC  LANGUAGE. ANTARES  IS  THE  BRIGHTEST  STAR  IN  THE  STAR  COLLECTION SCORPION,  AWAY  FROM  THE  SUN  BY  APPROX.  550  LIGHT  YEARS. ANTARES  IS  A  GORGEOUS,  SO  WE  BELIEVE  THESE  FEATURES  WILL  BE ASSOCIATED  TO  OUR  MACHINE.

Has various research instruments: 9  micro  cameras  allow  you  to  document  the  surface X-ray  spectrometer gas  chromatograph  for  analyzing  the  composition  of  volatile substances an  accelerator  in  each  of  the  lander  bases temperature  sensors  in  the  bases  and  in  each  corner  of  the  dome temperature  sensors  in  drills thermal  conductivity  sensors  in  antennas.
