Beanstalk Astronaut Camp is a week full of interactive activities focused on outer space and space travel! Learn about our planets, participate in STEM classes about the cosmos, go on a space adventure, and talk to a real person from NASA!

On Demand Classes

Calling all astronauts! Let's get ready for takeoff and create a balloon-powered rocket to transport our cargo.

Big box or paper bag

Child-safe scissors

Construction Paper

Glue or tape

Coloring supplies

Use your imagination and various household items to help Mr. Josh build our launch vehicle and lunar lander (hose, goggles, Space Helmet, creative add-ons to your box or basket)

What do we do on a deserted planet? Let's build our own Martian environments in preparation for a red hot mission!

MATERIALS NEEDED

Use your imagination to gather various household items to make your habitat (big box, couch cushions, blankets)

Come discover new planets where we could live as we meet a real astronomer and ask him our extraterrestrial questions!

MATERIALS NEEDED

No materials needed!

How can we safely land a rocket ship or rover on a new planet? Let's build a landing vehicle to protect all of the things inside with a cool experiment!
