summer camp at The Grayson School - A Mission to Mars

Scientists predict humans will arrive on Mars in 2030.

What will it take to get there? And how will we survive when we do?

Join us to answer these important questions at our Mission to Mars Summer Camp.

Collaborate with fellow scientists on this project-based learning adventure to overcome the perils of space travel and reach Mars. We will launch rockets, design and construct a space station, engineer a Martian rover, conduct space-based experiments, cultivate a hydroponic garden, and even train for your mission like an astronaut.

Our Grayson teachers understand the intellectual curiosity of all gifted children, and plan an exciting array of activities that challenge high-ability learners to think critically, ask and answer difficult questions, solve problems to stretch their minds, have fun, and make new friends!
