Space Camp Alumni Look to the Future

As the celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo Moon Landing winds down, Space Camp Alumni turn to look ahead at the future of Space Camp and the U.S. Space & Rocket Center, home of Space Camp, as well as the programs offered for future Space Camp participants.

Just as rapidly as technology has changed over the past 50th years, the next 50 years are anticipated to be years of great achievements and incredible advancements. America is headed to send the first woman to the moon by 2024, along with returning man to the moon with the new Artemis program, and then sets its sights on Mars and beyond. Artemis will have fundamental propulsion components built right in Huntsville at Marshall Space Flight Center. This will solidify Huntsville’s stake in the space race and its namesake as the “Rocket City”.

Space Camp alumni work in diverse professional fields, with graduates of the program becoming scientists, engineers, teachers, and explorers of all kinds. As we look to the future, these fields are increasingly important to keep up with the rate of technology and new advancements. The new U.S. Cyber Camp was added to the Space Camp lineup in 2017, bringing a new training option for those interested in cybersecurity work and preparing those campers for this up and coming field.

Undoubtedly, as the digital world expands and the pace of society gets faster and faster, cybersecurity work will become in increasingly high demand. Making it a great addition to the current camp lineup. Governor Kay Ivey pledged $10 million dollars to the institution of a new cyber camp building at Space Camp, allowing the program to expand its offerings for future generations to come.

The legacy that Space Camp Alumni can leave for future enrollees in the Space Camp programs is this, a continued investment in time making sure that the latest technology can be offered at camp, spreading the word about events specially tailored to the over 800,000 Space Camp program alumni, and investing in the next generation with time and resources to keep the program at the cutting edge of STEM education.

Space Camp has become the pinnacle opportunity for STEM education and with the help of Space Camp Alumni, will continue to be for generations beyond our own.
