NEW MEXICO SPACE ACADEMY SUMMER SCIENCE CAMPS!
New Summer Camps!
Mars Base One
The Mars Curiosity rover lands on Mars on Aug. 6. Get there first! This year’s activities will feature astrobiology and how we hunt for life on other worlds. Learn how New Mexico helped put Americans on the Moon. Get to know your local star –our Sun – at the National Solar Observatory.
Learn the art of covert operations and espionage—and how spy satellites work. Journey into a world of high tech gadgetry, disguises and secret strategies. Learn tricks of the trade from those whose mission it is to get the information and knowledge that keeps us safe. Build a working model of the famous KH-9 Big Bird spy satellite.
How did the dinosaurs live—and die? Learn about Coelophysis, the dinosaur whose fate was to become our State Fossil, and how telescopes in New Mexico watch for the Big Rock that might have our names on it. Make a big splash as you create craters, then launch rockets to save Earth from an asteroid.
