Each year SFIC sends six students from our Catholic HS sophomore/junior class to the U. S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, Al.
Thanks to funding provided by our generous donors, the students attend a one week session (all expenses paid) at The Advance Space Academy (Space Camp). Participants get to spend one week participating in various activities and missions that an astronaut might do. The activities develop team building, leadership and critical thinking skills. The students must submit an application, exhibit a keen interest in STEM, have great grades, provide a recommendation from teachers, and complete an essay discussing how they would benefit from the experience.
The SFIC Space Camp crew this year hailed from The Academy of the Holy Angels, Cristo Rey Newark HS, Hudson Catholic Regional HS and St. Peter’s Prep. They had a wonderful time and they wanted to share some pictures and a video of their experience with everyone.
If you are an upcoming sophomore or junior in any of the Catholic HS in the Newark Archdiocese school district make sure you apply! Check on our website in October 2019 or with your HS Science teacher or department head for more information.
