  • Day 01 – Arrive in Houston

    Discover Houston, the largest city in Texas. Oil, cotton, and real estate are the backbone of Houston, a proud and wealthy metropolis situated on a vast plain just 50 miles north of the Gulf of Mexico. Strewn with glittering skyscrapers and endowed with many great galleries, museums and performing arts centers, Houston is as much a cultural center as an economic one. Check in to your hotel upon arrival.  (Meals: D)

    Day 02 – Visit Johnson Space Center Camp Program (Optional)

    Design, Build, & Launch a Rocket – Teams will engineer a rocket of their own design by deciding which rocket parts are needed and what they can afford given their project budget.

You will participate in underwater training exercises using SCUBA gear in a local indoor pool. (Meals: B, D)

    Day 03 – Visit Johnson Space Center Camp Program (Optional)

    Engineer a Rover Lander – Given a set of parameters and tasks each rover must accomplish on Mars, students must decide how to create a robotic rover.

Teams put their rovers to the test on a Martian landscape, attempting to locate and retrieve Martian rocks.  (Meals: B, D)

    Day 04 – Visit Johnson Space Center Camp Program (Optional)

    Lofting Into Space – Given information about specific topics, all groups must present the necessary information to accomplish their rocket, rover, landing, and lofting projects. Since teams do not have the same information, communication is critical!
