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:

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.
