51 students and 18 teachers from 9 countries, including Poland, the United Kingdom, Lithuania and the United States, participated in the 16th Partner School Science Program (PSSP), also known as the E-PAL Week, which is organized by Global Friendship Through Space Education Foundation and Space Camp Türkiye on July 1-7 2018.

Participants ranging in age from 9 to 15 participated in fun and educational activities such as training with astronaut simulators, rocket construction and launching, virtual space flight mission with space station, virtual Mars tour, astronomy via magic planet, special events night, and barbecue party. During the science fair, which was organized especially for E-Pal Week, participants shared the projects that they have been working on throughout the year, with their friends. The most important event of the week was the videoconference session with NASA Flight Director, Ed Van Cise. Students received the latest information regarding NASA's space operations and International Space Station flight operations during the videoconference.

Space Camp Türkiye’s programs which are offered for students in the 7-18 age group and range from 1.5 days to 6 days, will continue until the end of August.

What is Partner School Science Program?

Since 2003, GFTSE and the PSSP have been bringing together science classrooms from around the world, using a common interest in space science and space travel that is shared amongst all participants. Using effective NASA based learning materials, STEAM and project based teaching methods – to open communication, appreciation, and understanding between partner school students that goes beyond cultures and language.

At the end of the year, students exhibit their projects at Space Camp Türkiye while learning about the different cultures and building new friendships as well as developing personal skills during the Galactic Summer Camp.
