About Space Explorer Camp

Space Explorer Camp is a leading initiative, launched by the Mohammed bin Rashid Space Centre (MBRSC), to provide young enthusiasts an exceptional experience in space exploration and to help them understand our fascinating planet and the solar system. The Space Explorer Camp will ignite their passion for the universe by providing a unique hands-on experience on space science and technology.

Participants will receive lessons from specialists in the UAE space program, space technologies, and the different environments of the solar system. They will meet the leaders and members of the following teams in person:

UAE Astronaut Programme | Emirates Mars Mission | Mars 2117 | Satellite Development Programme (KhalifaSat)

In practical sessions they will design, build, and launch their own rocket models. In MBRSC’s mission control they will witness the operations of a real satellite. During night time a stargazing session will provide a direct look at our neighbors in space.

This Space Explorer Camp will be a unique learning experience. It includes daily educational activities, programmes, and practical and theoretical competitions at the end of the camp. The camp aims to encourage participants to learn about space, develop their skills in innovation and creativity, and provide them with the necessary technical skills through activities.
