Free Space Camp for Middle Schoolers!
For ages 11-14.
Join us on a four-hour space exploration camp at the Apache Junction Library! Students will use the TREC's Advanced Spaceflight Laboratory spacecraft flight simulator to "survey" the planets of the Solar System. Presented by TREC (Technical Research & Engineering Company), participants will be divided into groups and rotate through complimentary classroom activities and science exercises. This free space camp is an excellent opportunity to learn about all the elements necessary to be a space explorer! Some snacks will be provided, but please bring your water, lunch, and special dietary snacks if required.
