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

The MB-RJ-NK-2021 rover has large wheels made of strong rubber that allow it to move freely on the surface of the moon. It draws energy from lunar dust and converts it into energy. The rover has mounted cameras that allow you to see meteorites or other threats. It is also equipped with an artificial satellite that allows you to determine accurate weather information and easier GPS navigation. The rover is equipped with construction equipment. It is used by astronauts to build space stations, housing modules. The rover can be controlled manually or automatically. It has comfortable seats and strong windows in the event of meteorite strikes.
