This summer camp is open to students in grades 5th-9th* and meets daily Monday, June 21 thru Friday, June 25 from 9 a.m.- Noon with options for online or in-person.

*Please note: This is the grade the student was in for the 2020-21 school year.

Assistant Teaching Professor of Mathematics at the Indiana Academy, Dr. Michael Niemeier, will be leading this hands-on and interactive camp. Students will use the design thinking process that includes making prototypes to create a solution that answers this question: What will it take to live on Mars?

This program is made possible in part thanks to a partnership with NASA Glenn.
