Hosted by NASA, the West Virginia Space Grant Consortium, and the Mid Atlantic Aerospace Complex, the three day camp is scheduled for June 13 through June 15.
Learning events will take place at three WVU campuses: Evensdale campus, Wheeling, and Bridgeport.
Events on the first day include the following: aerospace and aviation-related activities, hands-on design challenges, lab tours at the Benjamin M. Statler College of Engineering and Mineral Resources (SCEMR), and a presentation by the Spinning Bees featuring world freestyle Frisbee Champions.
On day two, campers will go to Wheeling to participate in the onsite mission at the Challenger Learning Center Academy.
Day three, campers will travel to the Bridgeport Airport to take part in demonstrations and static displays, which allow up close experiences with aircraft and aerospace industries.
Also on day three and open to the public, there will be a presentation by former astronaut and WVU alumnus Captain Jon McBride at 1:30 p.m. on the Evansdale Campus at SCEMR.
Made possible through a grant from NASA's education office, this kids' camp is an all-expenses paid treat.
