Moon Camp @ School


Moon Camp @School provides a platform for the Moon Camp educator community to share their classroom projects related to the exploration of the Moon and lunar design. These projects can range from scientific experiments, artistic or hands-on projects, design of space infrastructures, 3D printing models, virtual or augmented reality worlds and much more. Get creative!

The projects can be developed in the context of participation in Moon Camp Discovery, Explorers, Pioneers or be totally independent. Moon Camp @ School is a non-competitive sharing platform. All entries that comply with the guidelines will receive a special participation certificate and their project will be displayed on the Moon Camp online platform.
