NASTAR Camp Dates for 2015
The NASTAR® Center, a premier commercial space training and research center, will once again host its popular NASTAR Camp program for students in grades 2 – 12 during the summer of 2015. NASTAR Camp sessions are Monday – Friday, from 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM. The NASTAR Camp curriculum has been structured to be fun while it reinforces the Pennsylvania Academic Standards for Science and Technology and Engineering Education. All curricula and activities are age and grade appropriate.
Each week-long session has a particular theme with relevant activities that comprise about half of the program. Students will also assemble and fly balsa gliders, pilot an aircraft simulator, build and launch model rockets, and engage in other perennial favorite activities. The emphasis throughout each week is on hands-on activities and projects that engage students and foster inquiry-based learning to help them better understand science and technology.
Richard A. Leland, President of the NASTAR Center, stated “We are pleased to once again open our doors to students through NASTAR Camp. Our nation faces challenges including the need for additional scientists and engineers to ensure continued economic growth. Our objective with the NASTAR Camps is to inspire young people to pursue technical careers.”
The schedule for NASTAR Camp 2015 is as follows:
The cost for NASTAR Camp is $250.00 per week. For NASTAR Camp enrollment information, please contact Greg Kennedy at (215) 355-9100, X 1512, or firstname.lastname@example.org. A registration packet may also be downloaded from the NASTAR Center website, www.nastarcenter.com.
