Are you a 6th, 7th, 8th or 9th grader in the Los Angeles area?

Then be a part of the teams from around the city who will help solve aerospace, aviation and space exploration challenges with team work, field trips, talking to NASA astronauts, engineers and scientists, and learning about the Magic of Flight—hands on at the California Science Center with its countless displays of science, aviation, exploration and demonstrations of everyday Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) including the Hands on Science Camp and home of Space Shuttle Endeavor.

Boost your science skills and learning power— and yeah, you have fun!

TEWS—Space Race is based on The Earth We ShareTM (TEWS) international science camp programs developed by Dr. Mae Jemison that have been held across the US and internationally since 1994. TEWS— Space Race is winner of a NASA Summer of Innovation award. The camps use aviation, aerospace and space exploration content to teach science concepts while building problem solving and critical thinking skills. Students work in teams with teachers as their guides to solve problems like — Design an exercise program and equipment to keep teenagers healthy on Mars — or — Should we try to develop a weather machine? — or — Design an energy system to power our trip to Io?
