The ASMDA Space Camp Scholarship Class of 2016 just completed their week at Space Camp. A luncheon was held in their honor on 6 July attended by Mayor Battle of Huntsville, Mayor Trulock of Madison, MG Hughes of MDA and other dignitaries from Redstone and the Huntsville community. ASMDA's annual Space Camp Scholarship program is part of our STEM outreach and we sponsor a full class of 9-11 year olds at Space Camp in Huntsville, Alabama. This year we had students from Kwajalein (2), Alaska (2), Colorado Springs (2), Huntsville (8) and Omaha and Virginia (16 total). ASMDA Space Camp scholarships are open to all organizations supported by ASMDA as well as employees of corporate members of ASMDA. Applications open in April and are typically due 1 May. Applicants are evaluated on school grades and a handwritten essay covering a variety of space related topics.
