The Mohammed Bin Rashid Space Centre (MBRSC) has announced the opening of registration for its Summer Space Camp 2023. The immersive two-week camp is designed for budding space enthusiasts aged 11 to 15 and is geared towards fostering curiosity, creativity, and interest in space sciences among the youth.
The camp for girls will kick off from August 7-10, with the boys’ camp following suit from August 14-17. The day camp, which will be conducted in English, will run from 8:30 AM to 3 PM, offering the young participants a platform to learn and grow while having fun.
At the Summer Space Camp 2023, participating students will be engaged in theoretical and practical workshops, activities, and competitions. The agenda includes building space missions, exploring space with drones, understanding the basics of space engineering, rover building, constructing their own CubeSat, and facing the exciting challenge of space exploration with robots.
The programme will be steered by project leaders and team members from the various project and mission teams at MBRSC. Through these activities, the centre aims to take students beyond the realms of traditional learning and provide them with a hands-on experience of what it takes to venture into space.
The camp will be hosted at MBRSC in Dubai and participants will also have the exclusive opportunity to tour the centre’s various facilities, offering them an insight into the world of space exploration.
The Summer Space Camp 2023 is part of MBRSC’s ongoing initiative to spark students’ interest in space science and technology-related disciplines. It aligns with the centre’s primary goal of nurturing a new generation of scientists, engineers and astronauts who will significantly contribute to the UAE’s growing space sector.
