A: We must have a minimum of 100 paid registrants to conduct this program. Moreover, the payments have to be transferred to Kennedy Space Center, USA at least 40 days in advance to confirm the seats. The shipment and distributions of the camp kits to each individual will take around 2-3 weeks. Hence, it is important that everyone interested in the program should register and pay before 30th June 2021. We will be forced to cancel the program if we do not get the minimum number of paid registrants before 30th June 2021.
A: The interactivity consists of Q&A via the chat room. Educators may sometimes ask questions in which the participants can type in their response. Groups may also ask questions and the Educators will respond live. KSC encourages larger groups to email their questions to the Education Team ahead of time, and the Educators will address those questions during the camp.
A: 499 participants is the max.
A: Yes. This program is intended for all nationalities in Saudi Arabia. However, ability to speak English fluently is necessary. It is ideal for students of ages 7 to 9 (with parental assistance) and 10 to 15 (independently).
A: “Successful completion” is just a matter of semantics since many virtual campers miss activities and later complete them using the videos. There will be a certificate provided for each paid participant of the program and the certificate will be included in the kits which are received prior to the start of the program.
A: No. However, there are three engineering design challenges that the teachers could use as an assessment if they want to.
A: No. We do not have a later batch scheduled at this point.
