The European Space Camp is a summer camp taking place from 6th to 13 August 2017 in Andøya Rocket Range, in Norway.
High-school students worldwide, from 17 to 20 years old, interested in space and science, and having a background in physics and mathematics are invited to apply.
They will spend a week doing technical experiments involved in a rocket campaign, working as real rocket scientists, learning how to exploit knowledge they already possess, and broadening their understanding of applied science.
Working in groups, they have to use their creativity and learn to cooperate. The programme includes hands-on activities related to the rocket launch, lectures and social activities.
- Participants worldwide, should be between 17 and 20 years old.
- They should be fluent in English and have a background in physics and mathematics.
How to apply
