24 Apr 2020
We are happy to announce that Darina I. from Grade 6 will represent British school of Sofia in the 2020 Summer Space Camp in Izmir, Turkey.

She has successfully passed the three stages of the competition and has been granted a scholarship.

Her essay “On the Edge of a Black Hole” was the initial part of the selection and she earned the possibility to participate in the Space Camp.

Space Camp provides unique STEM experience for students of all ages and they have the chance to train like real astronauts. Each year trainees from more than 150 countries visit Space Camps in USA and Turkey. They learn space and flight history, work together as teams, experience simulators, complete simulated space missions and learn what it really means to be astronaut.

The curriculum teaches principles, leadership and teamwork, while encouraging students to have fun and creative. 21st century skills are required in the workplace as students work as a team and confront mission scenarios that require problem solving and critical thinking.

Every week in the summer there are astronauts speakers. Some of the Space Camp alumni fly fulfill their dreams and even pursue a career in flying in space.

Due to the uncertainty regarding the Covid-19 situation the camp might be postponed for the next year.
