HANCOCK COUNTY, Miss. - The next space mission at StenniSphere's Astro Camp Saturday will be "Mission to Mars" on March 17. A few spaces still remain for children ages 9-12.

In this session of the popular space camp, children can build their own model rockets for a make believe trip to Mars. Seven slots are still available for this one-day mission at NASA Stennis Space Center's visitor center. The cost is $50 and includes lunch in the RocKeTeria and all supplies.

"Our students will design, build and test a model rocket suitable for a mission to Mars," said Maria Lott, Astro Camp Saturday director. Children will learn all the exciting details of planning a trip to Mars - how far they will travel, how long it will take, what supplies they will need, and how to survive in the Martian environment.

Future Astro Camp Saturday missions are scheduled throughout the spring. On April 21, children can build and launch their own rockets in Rocketry 101. On May 19, there will be an opportunity to go aboard Star Station OneTM in a program about the International Space Station.

Call (228) 688-2322 or 1-800-237-1821 (Option 1) to register or for more information.
