VIRTUAL SPACE MISSIONS LED BY ASTRONAUTS, SCIENTISTS & ENGINEERS
LAUNCHING SEPTEMBER 24-29, 2023!
As part of a mission team, students will virtually design spacecraft, navigate to another planet, land their vehicle, build a planetary habitat, and explore a new planet to find resources in order to sustain human life. Students will learn from subject matter experts including astronauts, scientists and engineers who are directly involved in ongoing missions as they compete with other teams for the best mission design.
- September 24-29, 2023.
- Space Teams is a 6-day program (4 hours/day).
- Participate on your own time.
- First 24 Texas students are FREE through the Texas Space Grant Consortium!
- Join individually or as a team: Individual explorers will be placed by Space Teams into teams of 4 students.
- TSGC will sponsor 6 teams of 4, or 8 teams of 3, or 12 teams or 2, or any combination up to 24 for this event.
- Act fast! Only the first 24 are FREE. Additional explorers can get 30% off using discount code: TSGC321
- Program Regular Cost: $295
- For schools and after-school programs: TSGC can sponsor one team (up to 4 students) for the Space Teams Global Space Challenge. (Alternatively, apply to become a Space Teams Lab and get hardware, training and an educator stipend to run the autonomous classroom version with time-independent self-directed lessons.)
Space Teams Global Space Challenge is to open to all young space explorers ages 12 and up.
This experience was definitely one of the best!!!! The cooperation across and within the teams was dynamic and priceless. The vocabulary they gained and expressed was so incredible. Thank you very much for organizing this awesome competition! It was well worth it and I’m sure this is an experience that our students will share for the rest of their lives… Keep spreading the challenge. We need to expose our “Artemis Generation” with this degree of knowledge to be prepared for the upcoming future. To infinity and beyond…Teacher
The overall experience of the challenge was amazing and the knowledge gained will be very useful for my future learning. It gave me insight into potential careers in the space industry and I am now thinking I could study either astrophysics or aeronautical engineering with the possibility of working for the Australian Space Agency or even NASA.Student
Led by former astronaut, Dr. Greg Chamitoff, students will learn from subject matter experts including astronauts, scientists, and engineers who are directly involved in ongoing missions as they compete with other teams for the best mission design.
