The Chautauqua Region Community Foundation has extended the deadline for students attending the United States Space Camp to apply for financial assistance. Applications for the Lucile M. Wright Air Museum “Space Camp” Scholarship will be accepted until December 1.
Since 1982, individuals of all ages, and from all over the world, have attended Space Camp, located in Huntsville, Alabama and participated in activities such as simulated shuttle missions, rocket building and launches, scientific experiments, and lectures on the history and future of space exploration. In addition to many youth programs, there are also programs for educators to participate in to promote learning in a classroom setting.
More than 50 local students and adults have been awarded the “Space Camp” Scholarship to assist with costs associated with attending the camp. The scholarship is awarded to individuals from the 4th grade through adults who have an understanding of the solar system and in interest in space travel.
