Science projects for schools are curated from educational packages offered year-round by Space Camp Türkiye, comprising the Partner School Science Program (PSSP) and the Future Explorers Program (FEP). These education packages aim to enable children to understand the world around them, become fully developed and more successful, active members of society, and ultimately foster intercultural friendships.

Throughout the academic year, students aged 9-15 participate in projects presented in various themes and modules, supported by a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) based education program. They experience the privilege of exploring the universe and discovering their own potential through activities supplemented by STEAM themes.

Specially arranged science projects for schools are conducted online with NASA-based educational materials and moderated by competent Distance Learning Specialists at Space Camp Türkiye's Digital Learning Center. Students learn innovations that will help them choose their careers by actively reinforcing science learned in school through "space-themed" activities and video conferences conducted on different themes.

Exclusive to school groups, training in these projects is conducted via video conferences. Under the supervision of their teachers, students who register for the program showcase the projects they have worked on throughout the year at a science fair during the special-themed Galactic Summer Camp program held at the end of the year.

Video conferences held between two "partner" schools in different countries or between Space Camp Türkiye and participating schools provide participants with the opportunity to personalize face-to-face meetings and camaraderie meaningfully.

While students develop skills in thinking outside the box and applying what they know to different projects throughout the academic year, they also make friendships with people from different cultures.

Participants in the project have the opportunity to meet students from partner schools and other "explorers" during six-day special sessions called E-Pal Week and Future Explorers Summit (FES) week at Space Camp Türkiye during the summer. During these sessions, campers interact with students from many countries during the organized "Science Fair" and share their team projects with them; they develop their communication and presentation skills.

All students who successfully meet the requirements of FEP and PSSP receive special discounts on participation fees for FES and E-Pal Weeks, which are specially organized as part of the Galactic Summer Camp.

Science projects for schools offer different program options throughout the year:

The Science Projects for Schools Distance Education Approach 

Science projects for schools are created by combining two different approaches. The first of these approaches is based on NASA educational materials and specifically includes STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) topics. This learning model is called the 5E model (Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate, Evaluate). This system benefits from the Constructivist Approach, allowing students to build on their previous knowledge and understand concepts by adding new insights.

The 5E learning model is an example of teaching that uses a constructivist approach. It allows students to improve themselves by adding to their past knowledge and experiences and allows them to evaluate how well they understand the subject.

  • Engage - The "Engagement Activity" allows students to establish connections between their past and present learning. This helps them make predictions and focus on what they have learned.
  • Explore - Students identify and develop new concepts, processes, and skills. During these types of activities, students learn, explore, and change the world around them.
  • Explain - Speaking about and applying the skills and knowledge they have learned allows students to better understand the materials.
  • Elaborate - Expands students' understanding and gives them the opportunity to apply the skills they have learned. Using these skills helps students internalize ideas more deeply and broadly.
  • Evaluate - Encourages students to reflect on and evaluate their new skills and talents. It also gives teachers an idea of exactly what students have learned about key competencies and what new skills they have developed during this process. The second approach used in science projects for schools is the Key Competencies reference tool of a European Commission project, also used to improve education and teacher training techniques within the European Union (EU). These competencies, defined as the knowledge, skills, and behaviors that every individual in the knowledge society needs, are grouped into eight headings.



Space Camp Türkiye offers the best international summer camp experience for 9-15 year olds with astronaut simulators, global friendship and a packed program for groups or individuals. Our flexible programs for school groups and customizable curriculum make us the top choice for parents in Türkiye, Europe, and Asia.



The purpose of Space Camp Türkiye daily tours is to increase the interest of students in science and to inform them in the field of space and space technology.



Adult Programs allow you to experience the excitement of space studies with your colleagues or family, while providing you with the opportunity to develop your leadership and teamwork skills.
