USA Space Camp Tour

Blackwater State High School’s vision is:  ‘We create excellent educational opportunities in an environment of success that inspires and supports students to achieve their full potential’.  In partnership with EDU School Tours, we are excited to offer Blackwater State High School students the opportunity to participate in a USA Space Camp Tour biannually.

 

The inaugural tour was held during the 2016 September school holidays,when 12 eager students embarked on a trip of a lifetime. Students began their 14 day journey in Orlando, Florida, where they experienced ski diving in a wind tunnel, air boating over the Everglades, learned the science behind Universal's greatest attractions and visited the Kennedy Space Centre, where they lunched with an astronaut.

This was then followed by 5 days in Huntsville, Alabama where they attendedan intensive space camp to learn skills that are used by actual astronauts. Space camp is a program to promote the study of math, science and technology and is fully endorsed by NASA. Students participated in a rigorous program that taught them about the mental, emotional and physical demands astronauts’ face and were provided leadership training as well as learning the importance of teamwork. Students were guided through the past, present and future of space exploration.

Students ended their trip touring San Francisco, California seeing iconic sites such as Alcatraz Prison, the Golden Gate Bridge, Chinatown, Intel Headquarters and so much more.

It is our aim to offer this excellent educational and travel opportunity to our students every two years with our next tour to take place during the September/October holidays in 2018.
