Interstellar Dreams Space Center: Explore, Imagine, Design

Interstellar Dreams is a new take on a summer space camp, designed for rising 6th graders through rising 9th graders that blends “hands-on” fun and “minds-on” tech with their imagination to launch the future of space exploration. Campers will Explore space, Imagine the future, and Design the possibilities of ethical space exploration.  The Interstellar Dreams Space Center at George Mason University is a partnership between the Pearl Project Institute and George Mason University Observatories. Click here for more information and to register.

Mars 2030 is the next destination for human deep space exploration. Our driving need to answer the question; “Is there life on other planets” is at the heart of our curiosity. Rich with scientific discovery, Mars, is an opportunity to ethically expand human presence in our solar system. Join Interstellar Dream’s one-week space camp where you will assume the role of habitat planner, planetary scientists, geologist, space architects, and engineers to plan mission goals, design human living habitats, and build transportation vehicles.
