Charter school plans space camp
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
