Char­ter school plans space camp

Serve Daily - - FOSTERING GROWTH -

Merit Col­lege Prepara­tory Academy hosted an open house to an­nounce the launch of the JPax Space Camp on Thurs­day, April 30, at the academy.

The JPax Space Camp is an in­ter­ac­tive STEM pro­gram de­signed to help stu­dents learn and ex­plore space and plan­ets as well as ex­pe­ri­ence space ex­plo­rations. When par­tic­i­pat­ing in the camp, through a sim­u­lated fu­tur­is­tic adventure story, stu­dents will be given ca­pac­i­ties depend­ing on their roles rang­ing from cap­tain to en­gi­neer and pi­lot. Then each stu­dent will be as­signed a mission and all crew mem­bers must use team­work, strat­egy and cre­ativ­ity to ac­com­plish their mis­sions.

By launch­ing the JPax Space Camp, Merit Academy hopes to pro­vide stu­dents a unique learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence where stu­dents can de­velop their so­cial skills and dis­cover their pas­sions.

Ev­ery­one is in­vited to ex­pe­ri­ence the in­ter­ac­tive space stim­u­la­tion, learn more about the pro­gram and reg­is­ter for the camp. To re­serve a space mission, send an email to kim.mitchelle@mer­i­ta­cademy.org.
