An experience that will take you out of this world!
Space Camp 2019 is a five day residential STEM experience in the beautiful countryside of Shropshire, forming part of the Royal Air Force Youth Engagement programme. The camp will take place between Aug 12th and Aug 16th and will be free to attend for successful applicants.
Working in teams across the week, each will work towards its own High Altitude Balloon launch and retrieval, involving predictions, payload build, helium research and footage film shows. In addition, there will be specialist workshops throughout the week from the Royal Air Force STEM Ambassadors, Dr Megan Argo UCLan, the Shropshire Astronomy Society and hi-impact’s own STEM delivery team - we will also be undergoing astronaut style training throughout the week in a series of fun, physical challenges including a Scuba Diving session to simulate the weightlessness of Space!
The aim of the course will be to raise awareness of STEM-related subjects and their role in the modern workplace, drawing on the experience of professional scientists, teachers, ambassadors and other inspiring and motivational guests.
