NSOF Virginia Space Flight Academy Summer Camp

Navy Special Operations Foundation (NSOF) and Virginia Space Flight Academy (VSFA) Partner To Offer Scholarships To Space Adventure Camps!

NSOF and VSFA are offering full-tuition scholarships to 3 deserving students (ages 11-15) to attend a week-long residential space and engineering-themed camp this summer at Wallops Island, Virginia.  All camps are five nights in length, and include hands-on, interactive activities.  Students will build and launch model rockets; design, build and program robots; fly drones; and acquire basic coding skills.  Field trips to a working NASA base offer opportunities to meet with engineers and technicians and learn about potential career opportunities. The action occurs on Virginia's beautiful Eastern Shore.

Check out VSFA's website at vaspaceflightacademy.org to learn more about their summer camps.   They make learning fun, while striving to capture the imaginations and creativity of young minds who are drawn to the sciences, technology, engineering, and math.
