Summer 2007 space camp is all about going back to the Moon. Kids attending the June camps will form small teams of 6 with two teen volunteer facilitators. Kids will have the opportunity to build a model of the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) that NASA will will launch in 2008. After the building is done they will move to Mission Control located in the library computer lab. Each team will have access to actual lunar data of 4 potential lunar (base/colony) sites. Kids will access the information from a local Mission Moon web site. The mission is for each team to evalute the lunar data and recommend to NASA scientists one site that they want the LRO to visit and acquire more data during the 2008 mission.
