Apply for SPACE CAMP
February 11, 2020



Suit up for a mission to the International Space Station or train for a landing on the moon this August! Space Camp is the ultimate educational experience that illuminates real-world applications of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. You can work as a team and confront mission scenarios that require dynamic problem solving and critical thinking — skills required in the 21st century workplace. Throughout the week, you will be immersed in astronaut training techniques using equipment adapted from NASA’s astronaut program. You will learn about space hardware, enjoy an educational water activity and experience a spaceflight mission while learning about aerospace career opportunities.

This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, to attend Space Camp with all expenses paid, will give you a taste of what it takes to be an astronaut and other careers in aeronautics, engineering, information technology, and physics, among others.

Embassy Suva is sponsoring this competition to encourage youth to pursue Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM) and prepare them to be competitive members of the 21st century workforce. This competition, in conjunction with other STEAM activities and an upcoming girls’ science camp in August, demonstrate the United States’ commitment to developing the youth and opening doors to new opportunities.
