Did you know that Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex now offers Virtual Camp KSC? When the visitor complex was unable to host on-site Camp KSC® in 2020, the team developed a way to bring NASA-based science into the homes of kids all around the world! Since July of 2020, we’ve taught kids from 48 states and 17 countries in the Virtual Camp KSC program.
Virtual Camp KSC is a 3-day online camp full of interactive experiments and activities led by a Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex educator. Students launch different types of rockets, learning what makes them soar, and drop or fly different objects into the atmosphere to get an up-close look at aerodynamics and gravity. Plus, there will be a few surprise STEM-based activities along the way. The education team mails the needed supplies for the activities to campers, and they learn via Zoom from their own home—wherever that may be!
As the next Virtual Camp KSC approaches, we wanted to share some highlights provided to us by our previous campers. All images and quotes are used with permission from the families.
Virtual Camp KSC is offered in August 2021 with spots still available! Your aspiring space explorers can enjoy the last weeks of summer experiencing just how fun science, engineering, math and technology can be! Explore below for available weeks and more information.
