Mars Space Mission Summer Program at Boston Leadership Institute [AEROSPACE ENGINEERING)

Summer Program



On this mission to Mars, students will design how we get there, how we land, how we survive once we are there, and if we are very lucky, how we get back to Earth....for those who wish to do so. This is a great pre-college program for teens interested in various fields like rocketry, physics, space biology, engineering, and 3D printing.

This is a competitive admissions summer research program designed for teens.

Design and learn the science behind rockets that can reach Mars with a PhD Physicist from Harvard who has been on a simulated Mars Mission. Review data with him on the effects of radiation — which astronauts are exposed to on their journey through space — on human health and genetic mutations. Learn about the satellites, spacecraft, and other aerospace technologies scientists are using to chart interplanetary travel. Use ‘Mars-like’ soil to plant vegetables in a temperature controlled green house and assess how they would survive on the red planet. The first humans may walk on the red planet in the next five years—The future is here.  Be a part of the science of space exploration.  Put principles of physics, genetics, chemistry, biology, and engineering into action.
