Astro Camps focus on activities that engage campers in hands-on activities, computer learning experiences, and occasional on-site field trips and presentations by Stennis engineers and scientists. These activities teach math and science principles and explore science and space-related career possibilities. Themes vary by year, but the common goal is for students to have fun while learning basics of rocketry, propulsion and manned space travel.
