  • Física aeroespacial como lançamento de foguetões;
  • Construção de circuitos; 
  • Telemetria e inclui o lançamento de um foguetão durante essa semana. 
Os participantes terão oportunidade de assistir a palestras de alguns dos melhorescientistas e investigadores europeus sobre temas tão diversos como o LHC no CERN e as auroras boreais. 
Quem pode concorrer:
  • Estudantes entre 17 e 20 anos com interesse pela área do Espaço
Os alunos terão também que ser fluentes em inglês e ter conhecimentos de física e matemática
Mais informações e inscrições no site do European Space Camp.
Outras informações: Bolsas
Os estudantes com a nacionalidade de um dos países membros da Agência Espacial Europeia poderão concorrer a uma das duas bolsas financiadas por esta instituição. 
Mais informações sobre estas bolsas no site da ESA.


Applications for European Space Camp 2015 was open on the 1st of January 2015 and will end on 1st April 2015

Some information:
The first Space Camp took place at the Andøya Space Center in 1996, with 20 participants from across Scandinavia in attendance. 

After this initial success, European Space Camp quickly became an annual event and as of 2012, has attracted over 400 participants from over 20 countries across the world.

The scientific part of the camp is divided between lectures and group work

Some of the best lecturers from across Europe lecture on topics as diverse as Rocket Physics, the work of CERN and the Northern Lights. 

Group work enables participants to spend a week in the life of a scientist and tackle a problem relating to the rocket launch at the end of the week. 

There are five groups in total: Rocket System Design, Experimental Instrumentation, Payload, Rocket Telemetry and Rocket Physics. 

The highlight of the week is of course the rocket launch, which takes place near the end of the week, with just enough time to analyse the results of the launch.

An important part of Space Camp is getting to know the other participants and there will be a series of social activities organised as a result. 

There will be the opportunity to hike up a mountain, go on a sea safari, to play volleyball in the spectacular surroundings of the Andøya Space Center and to swim under the midnight sun followed by a trip to the sauna...
Applications 2015:

Applications for European Space Camp 2015 was open on the 1st of January 2015 and will end on 1st April 2015.

Stil on time ! It will be a awesome experience for students. Such an interesting way to get some good knowledge on space science. And participat on a rocket launch! Amazing week, no doubt.

Teachers, inform your students if they have good competences in physics, and mathematics, and of course in English.

Motivate your students girls, please! You know how good are some young girls in science!

Emmy  Noether (1882-1935)

Consider Emmy Noether, the legendary physicist once referred by Albert Einstein as, “The most significant creative mathematical genius thus far produced,” a fitting endorsement for a mathematician who made groundbreaking contributions to the fields of abstract algebra and theoretical physics, all the while overcoming deep seated sexism in her line of work. Google celebrates the 133th anniversary of Emmy Noether with a doodle, today 23March.

Noether was passionate about math, despite living in an era where women were often excluded from these subjects. 

While studying at the University of Erlangen as just one of two women at the school, Noether was only allowed to audit classes and needed to obtain permission from her professors in order to attend. 

After passing her graduation exam, she taught at the school’s Mathematical Institute for seven years without pay, frequently covering her father’s classes when he was out sick and publishing her own papers.

Emmy Noether Doodle

"In this doodle,each circle symbolizes a branch of math or physics that Noether devoted her illustrious career to. From left to right, you can see topology (the donut and coffee mug), ascending/descending chains, Noetherian rings (represented in the doodle by the Lasker-Noether theorem), time, group theory, conservation of angular momentum, and continuous symmetries–and the list keeps going on and on from there! Noether’s advancements not only reflect her brilliance but also her determination in the face of adversity."
