Starting on a high note and ending up in the skies
(literally), our space camp cadets got to be part of a 3-day programme that is
scientific and fun at the same time. Learning about the galaxy, how an
astronaut's body changes in space, how to design a rocket and build a rover,
they also had hands-on activities building water rockets and basic
First up was learning about how it is like living on the International Space Station (ISS), how an astronaut's body reacts to the vastly different environment up in space.
Then there was the fun bit of understanding the mechanics and engineering a rocket and its launch, which definitely helped the cadets in their creation of their own water rockets.
Cadets also had a great time honing their understanding on rovers on the moon and mars, and expanding their knowledge about the rover missions.
