Community Event: Go-For-Launch

  • St. Edward's University 3001 South Congress Avenue Austin, TX, 78704 United States

The three-day day camp will run July 11 – 13 at St. Edward’s University and is open to high school students up through rising college sophomores.  Tuition is $250 and includes lunch and snacks.

Students will spend three days with an astronaut and other mentors in residence designing an experiment to fly to the International Space Station (ISS). The projects will be judged before the end of the camp, and the winner gets the chance to have its design built, flown to the ISS, and conducted on the ISS!  There’s room for up to 200 students.  St. Ed’s is the ONLY university in Texas hosting a Go-for-Launch camp this summer!  Go-for-Launch gives new meaning to St. Ed’s slogan: “Take on Your World!”. There are ways students can raise funds to offset the $250 tuition, click here for more information. Also, students can register for as little as $10 with commitment to fundraise via PopCorn Factory or FannieMae.

Go-for-Launch are also looking for mentors at the camp.  Perhaps you know some who might be interested?  If you do, please contact garymorris@stedwards.edu
