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

our Krishna vr isro rover which is capable to make nuclear energy and solar energy which is byproduct very less weight but 5 to 6 year nonstop energy or can be more than that . it has a machines which can make O2 by energy and distribute the O2 and H gas from solid water present on moon . is has dimension of 2m* 1m * 0.5m in dimension . with wide variety of feature such as :-

  • large amount power supply with mini nuclear power and solar panel with A1 quality with silicon tight layer on solar panel for great protection .and due to enormous power supply we can use our 02 and h gas element supply by which we don’t want fuel of 700 to 900 kg fuel so our rover and orbiter is extremely light .
  • it base made up of carbon then a layer of silicon and graphene (lead) for very high rigidity and strength and capable to cope with the vacuum and extreme condition .
  • it has a wide variety of sensor such as  Temperature Sensor. , Proximity Sensor., Accelerometer ,IR Sensor (Infrared Sensor) ,Pressure Sensor. ,Light Sensor., Ultrasonic , Sensor ,Smoke, Gas and Alcohol Sensor. Fuel pressure sensor ,Knock sensor ,Light sensor ,MAP sensor ,Mass airflow sensor ,Oil level sensor  ,Torque sensor ,Transmission fluid temperature sensor ,Turbine speed sensor ,Variable reluctance sensor ,Vehicle speed  ANDMANY MORE LIKE THIS !!
  • it has a 6 motar with gear mattress which can climb any slope.
  • have 2 camera and 1 microphone to capture the surrounding.
  • with two hands it for it use with many antenna for better communication.
