Environmental Tectonics Corporation’ The NASTAR® Center, the premier commercial space training and research center in the world, will once again host its popular NASTAR Camp program for students in grades 4 – 6 and 7 – 8.  During the summer of 2010, more than 100 students attended the program.  NASTAR Camp sessions are Monday – Friday, from 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM.  The NASTAR Camp curriculum has been structured to be fun while reinforcing the Pennsylvania Academic Standards for Science and Technology and Engineering Education.  All curricula are age and grade appropriate.

Camp participants will construct balloon powered cars to learn about Newton’s Laws of Motion, launch small gliders they built to learn about the forces of flight, create simple weather instruments, and engage in other activities that foster inquiry-based learning.

Greg Kennedy, Director of NASTAR Educational Services, stated “We are pleased to open the NASTAR Center to elementary and middle school students for this program.  Our 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.”

Camp sessions will be as follows:

Grades 4 – 6:  June 28 – July 2 and July 12 – 16, 2011

Grades 7 – 8:  July 19 – 23 and July 26 – 30, 2011

The cost for the five-day session is $200.00 per participant.  This includes all supplies.  Participants will bring their own lunches, beverages and snacks.
