Our itinerary is absolutely jam packed. Our camps this year have a Mars theme, and there’s something for everyone, from visits to places like Questacon, to hands on experiments and film-making. Whilst we don’t want to give away all of the surprises, here’s some of the things you can expect:
We’ll visit Mt Stromlo, and the telescope that allows scientists to explore out solar system. We’ll visit Tidbinbilla Deep Space Centre, home to the massive satellite dishes that communicate with spacecraft and a NASA site. We’ll spend a day building robots and flying drones, to get an idea of the technology required to program and pilot remote vehicles and crafts. We’ll visit UNSW ADFA to get a lesson from real life engineers and scientists who work on NASA missions.
Throughout Space Camp, Campers will be putting together a short film about their experience, to be shown on the final day of each camp at the ‘Space Camp Film Festival.’ This will be live streamed on Facebook, for parents and friends at home to watch!

Space Camp was amazing, there was so much to do each day- my favourite was the flight simulator at UNSW ADFA and learning about the maths involved with designing, building and launching a rocket, and the prospect of being able to go live on Mars myself
The experience of being able to talk to a real life astronaut and people who work in the field was for me, the most enjoyable part as I was able to get a first hand account of what life in their job was like
I loved making friends, meeting students from the Australian National University and building robots
