STARS Camps are International residential, project based education camps, with bases in Europe, Asia and the USA. Operating since 2015, we specialize in space education. Our goal is to spark a love for science and creativity! STARS Camps activities are supervised by science teachers and correlate to middle school and high-school curriculum in Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Human Biology. STARS Camps are run by MAPP-Kuwait and Orbital Space.
We aim to provide unique learning experiences for students, teachers, and the public through informal education and inspiring hands-on activities that stimulate both the mind and emotions.
