2018 Overnight Destination Space Camp
AMOS is offering, for the 2nd year, Destination Space Camp, to high school-aged students from the region. Campers will work with scientists and professionals to learn about satellites and data collection to ultimately send a satellite into space on a NASA space launch.
Throughout the camp, students will:
- Become familiar with remote sensing and its various applications for earth systems research and applied sciences
- Learn about satellite sensors and electrical engineering and create a ThinSat – a small satellite the size of two cell phones
- Get hands-on experience using remote sensing instruments and receiving data as they launch their own ThinSats with drones and weather balloons
- Use remote sensing data for an applied project and present their results to current and past NASA and NOAA employees
When and Where
The 2018 overnight Destination Space summer camp will be held on the campus of UNC-Asheville from Sunday, July 22, 2018 through Saturday, July 28, 2018.
