An expert from NASA introduces "Sharjah Guides" to the secrets of space

An expert from NASA introduces “Sharjah Guides” to the secrets of space

The Sharjah Female Guides Commission recently organized a virtual summer camp for its subsidiaries between the ages of 11 and 14, which included a program approved by the US space agency (NASA), delivered by one of its experts in five days. It aims to identify the secrets of space science, encourage them to love research, and promote leadership in this important field of science.

The education camp includes a series of interactive sessions in which 25 female members participated in an exceptional experience of space exploration and planetary travel, as well as learning about the regional and international significance of the UAE program to explore Mars. They also had the opportunity to design and launch their own models, space exploration rowing vehicles and space rockets using a NASA certified curriculum. The science camp will include a series of practical activities and “immediate challenge” sessions to test participants’ problem-solving skills and improve their critical thinking skills.

The sessions shed light on the Emirates Mars Exploration Project (Probe of Hope), which marked a milestone in Mars’ journey when it successfully entered orbit around the red planet in February this year. NASA engineer Sylvester Shanley responded to them on the final day of the camp, showing them several videos and space photos, giving the participating young women the opportunity to ask questions and inquiries about space exploration.
