Mars Base Camp

The race to land humans on Mars is on for youth in Oneida County!

Developed in part by Google and supported by national partners like Toyota and the U.S. Air Force, Mars Base Camp is a collection of activities that teaches kids ages 8-14 skills like mechanical engineering, physics, computer science, and agriculture. Each box can be enjoyed with or without internet access and individually or all together as a family, while also allowing kids to think about the same problems that today’s top scientists and engineers are working on right now.

Each box includes materials for 1-4 youth to participate in the STEM Challenge at the same time, enabling families to participate from the comfort and safety of their own homes. Cost is $5/4-H-enrolled family or $15/non-4-H-enrolled family. 4-H is free to join anytime!
