Inspire kids to imagine they are the first human explorers on Mars with the 2020 4-H STEM Challenge, Mars Base Camp. Developed by Google and Virginia Cooperative Extension, Mars Base Camp is a program that allows kids to explore Mars in exciting and engaging ways while learning important STEM concepts like mechanical engineering, physics, computer science, and space agriculture.

Take Your Campers to Mars!

Invite your campers to join NASA for the launch of the Mars 2020 Perseverance rover and excite campers with Mars activities you can conduct virtually or in-person!

Invite Campers to Make Cloud Observations

Camps, campers, and their families are invited to join the NASA GLOBE Clouds 2020 Community Cloud Challenge: Science Is Better Together.

Connecting Camps to NASA Communities

Looking for someone to bring telescopes to an evening camp program, or to give your campers a presentation about the InSight mission landing on Mars this fall? NASA has communities of volunteers across the United States that can help.

Solar Celebrations

Camps are a great place to check out the sky, including the sun!

Activities for Campers During the Super Lunar Eclipse on January 31

A total lunar eclipse can be an eerie sight, as the moon grows dark and red. While each year features at least two lunar eclipses, many are partial or penumbral eclipses in which the moon only grows slightly darker.

Celebrate the Sun and Moon with Campers

NASA has a variety of opportunities to engage campers in STEM activities. This month, camps are invited to participate in Solar Week and the International Observe the Moon Night. 

Multicultural Eclipse Stories from the Lunar and Planetary Institute

Preparing for this summer’s solar eclipse, and looking for ways to engage your campers? Consider playing the free online multicultural eclipse stories, researched and recorded by professional storytellers Cassandra Wye and Fran Stallings at the request of the Lunar and Planetary Institute.  The Vanishing Sun: Eclipse Tales from Around the World was created to engage a variety of audiences, in preparation for the August 21 2017 Total Solar Eclipse.
