SpaceX CRS-10 launch containing an experiment by MSU's Craft Academy Students. Play

Blast Off camp (formerly Go for Launch!) will be offered on the MSU campus this summer through the Craft Academy for Excellence in Science and Mathematics.

Blast Off is a 5-day residential camp that uses space exploration as a platform to launch student involvement in STEM, STEAM, teamwork, communication and leadership. 

Student teams will work together on collaborative activities before or after nearly every lecture to earn daily awards. Each team will work together over the four days to define and design their own space experiment and present their ideas to a panel of judges from the Space and STEM fields. The judges will choose a winner from each Blast Off event and the winning experiment will be launched into space.

Blast Off is open to male or female students who are entering 9th or 10th grade. The camp will take place June 24-29 and participants will stay at Grote-Thompson Hall, the Craft Academy’s residence hall on MSU’s campus.

Participants will be limited to 24 male and 24 female participants. There is a $500 registration fee.  Registration is open now through through April 15, 2018. Registered applicants will receive an acceptance email with payment details by April 24, 2018. Acceptance RSVPs are due by May 1 and payment will be due in full by June 1.
