The Moon Camp Challenge is a yearly competition jointly run by the Airbus Foundation in partnership with Autodesk, and the European Space Agency.
Welcome to your house on the moon!: Each year, the Moon Camp Challenge competition invites students worldwide to imagine tomorrow’s functional lunar settlements with the help of 3D modelling tools.
Imagine what life could be like for astronauts on the lunar surface and participate with your ideas in this new edition opened on 14 September 2022 to 18 April 2023.
In this year’s contest, a new approach will help you to make easier your entry:
- The project doesn’t need to be in English, it may be submitted in any language. NEW!
- Join the Moon Camp@school, an online sharing community for teachers and educators. NEW CATEGORY!
- The advanced category, called Pioneers, in now open from 13 years old to 19 years old. NEW!
The Discovery category is open to anyone! By submitting your design of a Moon Lander, Rover or Habitat, you will receive a participation certificate.
The Explorers category is open to students up to 14 years old (included). Students will have to form teams to design their Moon Camp using Tinkercad and explain their decisions in a written report to the jury.
The Pioneers category is open to students from 13 to 19 years old (included). Students will have to form teams to design their Moon Camp using any 3D design software of their choice, and explain their decisions in a written report to the jury.
Moon Camp @School
Moon Camp @School provides a platform for the Moon Camp community to share their projects related to the exploration of the Moon and design: scientific experiments, hands-on projects, design of space infrastructures, 3D printing models, and much more. You will receive a participation certificate.
Moon Camp Challenge winners: 2021-2022
The fourth edition of the Moon Camp Challenge saw a record number of participants (over 5,600 students from 53 countries) as teams were tasked with designing an innovative and futuristic Moon Camp to host the future space explorers.
The jury – composed of a panel of experts in 3D design, space technology and lunar exploration – evaluated entries based on their creativity and innovation, feasibility, quality of the 3D model and the adaptability of the design to the lunar environment.
