Application Form - AstroCamp 2016
Exit Survey
AstroCamp 2016 is full and is no longer accepting applications.

AstroCamp 2016, sponsored by the SD Space Grant Consortium and SDSU, will be held July 12-13 on the campus of SDSU. The camp is open to South Dakota boys and girls who will be entering 7th or 8th grade in the fall of 2016.

AstroCamp engages students through hands-on science and engineering activities related to astronomy and space travel. The camp helps students make connections to concepts learned in school science classes and broadens understanding of their application. Students will develop skills in the areas of observation, data collection and analysis, and engineering design principles.

During the two-day camp, students will be provided meals (lunch and dinner on Tuesday, breakfast and lunch on Wednesday) and lodging for Tuesday night. We encourage all participants to stay on campus as we will have an evening observing session on Tuesday night (weather permitting).

Within a week after your application is received, you will receive an email regarding your acceptance into the camp. If you are accepted, you will receive additional forms by mail which will need to be completed and returned with your non-refundable $45 registration fee by June 24.

We look forward to seeing you this summer! If you have any questions, please contact or at 605-688-5859. Camp Instructors: Judy Vondruska (SDSU) and Marcie Welsh (Brookings School District)
