Students age 8-14 can set foot on INSpace Science Camp at the Frankfort Airport this summer. Brian Tanner, President and Chairman of the Indiana Space Port & Research Center is holding the Annual Space Camp this year at the Frankfort-Clinton County Airport on the western edge of Frankfort. Seats are still available for the unique experience for youth ages 8-14.
Spaceport INSpace Camp will study what it takes to travel to another planet and launch a high altitude balloon able to observe the curvature of the earth. The balloon will launch from Downtown Frankfort on the first day of the Frankfort Hot Dog Festival. The Camp will feature Airplane Rides, Rocketry, Space-oriented projects, Guest Speakers, a Drone Demonstration, prizes and other activities designed to make learning about space travel and aeronautics not only interesting and educational but fun.
2018 is the 12th year for the Camp. The Camp sells out each year according to Tanner. Space Port INSpace Camp was held at the Greenfield airport before moving to Frankfort for the 2018 season.
The camp will be held from Monday July 23 thru Friday, July 27th. Tanner and Prairie Grass Observatory Director Russell Kaspar are exploring ways the two organizations can work together.
Spaceport camp is funded in part by the Clinton County Community Foundation.
