NASA Space Camp Study Tour Countdown

Click to view NASA Space Camp Study Tour Countdown.

Rosehill Secondary College Science Department is running an overseas camp to visit the National Astronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Centre in Orlando, Florida, USA in March 2017.
The space camp at Kennedy Space Center International offers students a unique experience in STEM education.

STEM education is an interdisciplinary approach to learning that removes the traditional barriers separating the four disciplines of science, technology, engineering and maths.  There is often overlap between these fields and when they are brought together more meaningful learning can take place. STEM integrates these subjects into real world, rigorous and relevant learning experiences for students.  Research has shown that students grasp STEM concepts faster and remember them for longer when they learn them through a project that provides a scenario or problem for them to solve.

Students will:
Participate in a simulated Space Shuttle Mission and STEM activities.
Learn hands-on about the science of space travel.
Tour the Kennedy Space Center.
Hear real-life stories from a shuttle astronaut.
Experience the new home of Space Shuttle Atlantis.

In addition to the program at Kennedy Space Centre students attending the camp will also:
Investigate the physics and design process of rides at Universal Studios.
Student teams design build and test rockets that will enable them to accomplish simulated space missions at NASA.
Students will use iFLY’s unique vertical wind tunnel facility to indoor skydive and carry out a scientific investigation.
