Spring break is a great time to put your child on the STEM pathway. Flip the switch of imagination in them. Ignite a passion for lifelong learning with a hand-on, engaging Explorer Camp.

Held March 11-15, your child will engage in STEM activities, while exploring all that Space Center Houston has to offer. Campers ages 4-11 will learn about solving real-world problems, exploring space, work on coding problems using robots and more.

Register now for an amazing educational camp experience designed for young science and space explorers! In addition to engaging educational activities, campers tour inspiring Space Center Houston exhibits including Mission Mars, Independence Plaza and our seasonal plaza exhibits. Campers also watch live presentations and films and go behind the scenes at NASA Johnson Space Center.

Camp Opportunities

In the age 4-5 camp Mars Explorers, campers will discover how science and technology can solve problems that astronauts will face when they travel to Mars in this five-day learning adventure. Participants will fulfill their curiosity using age-appropriate robotic platforms through hands-on activities. Your engineer-in-training will be introduced to STEM principles and out-of-this-world fun.

In the age 6-7 camp Journey to Mars, campers will discover what it takes to sustain life beyond Earth through activities that will ignite his or her interest in science along with their sense of adventure in this five-day camp. Your astronaut-in-training will engage his or her creativity through engineering skills as he or she learns the basics of rocketry, discover coding, and explore hands-on science activities.

The age 8-9 camp Mars Exploration will challenge junior scientists to seek solutions to the obstacles of deep space travel. Participants will engage in engineering design challenges, use robotic platforms, and delve into topics such as geology, radiation, and rocketry.

The age 10-11 camp Mars and Beyond will inspire your junior engineer to collaborate and find solutions to the complications of deep space settlement. Participants will engage in engineering design challenges, use robotic platforms, and delve into activities such as thermal and habitat design, and rocketry.
