NASTAR CAMP

The NASTAR Center

The NASTAR Center at ETC hosts a summer space camp for students in grades 2 to 12. Our programs engage students in interactive activities designed to reinforce state standards for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education. Students are immersed in topics ranging from spaceflight to renewable energy.
 
The program for older students is an analytical, hands-on curriculum ideal for those who may consider careers in engineering, physics and math. The program for younger students is geared toward activities that demonstrate the exciting side of learning and discovery.
 
Popular activities include piloting a flight simulator, building solar car models, performing science experiments and building stomp rockets. Students are immersed in the NASTAR Center’s training and research activities. The NASTAR Center trains commercial space travelers and suppors the research of universities and government entities such as NASA.
 

NASTAR Camp experiences include:

• Piloting a flight simulator
• Exploring renewable energy
• Building a solar hot water heater
• Engineering solar car models
• Constructing a windmill generator
