European Space Camp in Norway

European Space Camp in Norway

Category : Oportunitati


Deadline: 1 April 2014
Open to: Applicants between the ages of 17 and 20 with a keen interest in Space and Rocket Physics
Venue: 31 July – 7 August 2014, Andøya Rocket Range in Norway

European Space Camp enables students between the ages of 17 and 20 to take control of every aspect of a rocket campaign, including circuit making, telemetry and of course the launch itself, under the supervision of some of Europe’s best rocket scientists. European Space Camp lasts one week at the Andøya Rocket Range in Norway, the northernmost launch facility in the world.

The scientific part of the camp is divided between lectures and group work. Some of the best lecturers from across Europe lecture on topics as diverse as Rocket Physics, the work of CERN and the Northern Lights. Group work enables participants to spend a week in the life of a scientist and tackle a problem relating to the rocket launch at the end of the week. There are five groups in total: Rocket System Design, Experimental Instrumentation, Payload, Rocket Telemetry and Rocket Physics. The highlight of the week is of course the rocket launch, which takes place near the end of the week, with just enough time to analyse the results of the launch.

An important part of Space Camp is getting to know the other participants and there will be a series of social activities organised as a result. There will be the opportunity to hike up a mountain, go on a sea safari, to play volleyball in the spectacular surroundings of the Andøya Rocket Range and to swim under the midnight sun followed by a trip to the sauna!

Applicants should be between the ages of 17 and 20 and a keen interest in Space and Rocket Physics is preferable. A good grasp of Mathematics and Physics is advised. Applicants must be fluent in English as all lectures and workshops are only covered in English.
