ETC’s The NASTAR Center Announces NASTAR Camp Registration Open for Summer 2014
SOUTHAMPTON, PA, USA, March 6, 2014 – The National AeroSpace Training And Research (NASTAR®) Center (www.nastarcenter.com), the premier commercial space training and research center in the world, will once again host its popular NASTAR Camp program for students in grades 2 – 12.
NASTAR Camp sessions will take place Monday – Friday, from 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM at our facilities located at 125 James Way, Southampton, PA 18966. The NASTAR Camp curriculum has been structured to be fun, while it reinforces the Pennsylvania Academic Standards for Science and Technology and Engineering (STEM) Education. All curricula and activities are age and grade appropriate.
Each week-long session has a particular theme with relevant activities that comprise about half the program; the rest of the week students assemble and fly balsa gliders, pilot an aircraft simulator, build and launch model rockets, and engage in other perennial favorite activities. The emphasis throughout the week is on hands-on activities and projects that engage students and foster inquiry-based learning to help them better understand science and technology.
William F. Mitchell, Chairman and CEO of ETC, stated “We are pleased to open the NASTAR Center to students for this program. This nation is facing future shortages of skilled engineers and scientists. We hope NASTAR Camp will inspire some of these young people to pursue technical careers.”
