The purpose of this educational program is to promote the development of the scientific potential of the state on the way to a knowledge-intensive industry and economy.
The SpaceCamp program combines the theoretical study of astronautics and the main areas associated with it, with active recreation.
Lectures by the best specialists, stargazing and film screenings, model rocket workshops and launches are an integral part of the agenda.
