Alex Higgins Space Camp Scholarship for Young Kids

Saturday , Posted by AME at 1:55 AM

Attending U.S. Space Camp and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama, and any attempt by an aspiring astronaut will be an impressive experience for a life time.

So far, 35 children have had the opportunity to attend the U.S. -Space and Rocket Center.

At Space Camp, participants are able to choose from three different tracks – space, aviation or robotics. The camp offers “in-depth, hands-on experiences for people to learn to train like an astronaut,” said Jennifer Jones, of the McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center.

The McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center and other space camps seek to encourage kids to be engaged in the fields of math, science, technology and engineering.

“The programs and experiences offered at U.S. Space Camp help to provide youths with the same level of inspiration that we felt when watching the boundaries being pushed outward by the Apollo program,” the Higginses said by e-mail. “Our goal is to try to ensure that deserving youths with a passion for space science and exploration are afforded the same opportunity that Alex had for a potentially life-changing experience of a week at space camp.”
