In this international and inspirational programme students will use innovative learning technologies to design their own Moon settlement with a 3D modelling tool (Tinkercad or Fusion 360). Teams will also have to develop a number of scientific experiments to explore the extreme environment of space and understand how astronauts could live on the Moon.
Registrations for the 2021/22 Challege will be open from 15 September 2021
Moon Camp Discovery: recommended for students aged 6 to 14 years old
Teams Design one component of the Moon Camp using Tinkercad. Once they upload their design, they will receive a Moon Camp participation certificate
Moon Camp Explorers: up to (and including) 14 years old
Using Tinkercad, teams design the complete Moon Camp and submit their report to an expert jury. Participating teams will compete for the Moon Camp Explorers prize for best project
Moon Camp Pioneers: 15 to (and including) 19 years old
Using Fusion 360, teams design the complete Moon Camp and submit their report to an expert jury. Participating teams will compete the the Moon Camp Pioneers Prize for best project.
Moon Camp is a collaboration between ESA and the Airbus Foundation, in partnership with Autodesk.

The European Space Agency is offering an online teacher training workshop “3D Design in education for beginners with Tinkercad”.The workshop will take place over two evening (2 hours each) on 19 and 26 January from 15.30hrs to 17.30hrs each evening. This course which is offered in collaboration with Airbus Foundation and will introduce the 3D design software Tinkercad, its use in education and relate it to space applications. You will also learn how to use this software to combine 3D design and coding and how to simulate a virtual circuit with an Arduino. Register for this course here
