Registration open for Astronaut Job Camp 2023

SaxaVord Spaceport is opening its doors for the third edition of Mike Mongo’s Astronaut Job Camp. 

Children, aged 11-14 in Shetland, and virtually across the UK and North America, are invited to take part in the summer camp, and can register now! 

Designed to complement the educational ambitions of SaxaVord Spaceport, the Astronaut Job Camp’s mission is for children to foster the acquisition of STEAM skills and teamwork, get a taste for space professionalism, and leave with the knowledge that a career in the space industry is firming within their grasp.  

Starting for virtual participants on 3rd July, the camp will involve a series of fun and interactive space mission-themed workshops and special guest experiences from professional astronauts and scientists. The astronauts-in-training will learn about tomorrow’s jobs in space, the skills needed in space missions, inclusivity in the cosmos, how space connects us across the globe, and its impact on sustainability.  

Mike Mongo is director of the United Launch Alliance-sponsored Humannaires Initiative, YouTuber and US author of The Astronaut Instruction Manual, and is working with SaxaVord for a third year running to design and host the camp.
