The Eileen Collins Aerospace Camp is not your typical summer camp. During this weeklong adventure, campers will learn about aviation first hand when they soar above Elmira’s valleys in a glider and fly above Painted Post in a Cessna aircraft. When they’re not in the air, campers will be busy with hands-on projects, such as building and launching rockets, or designing objects to be built on the Museum’s 3D printer. There will also be a larger focus on engineering this year, when campers design, build, and test water filtration systems, much like the astronauts on the International Space Station use the Environmental Control and Life Support System to recycle and reuse wastewater. ECAC also features a number of trips, and old favorites will be returning, such as a tour of the Elmira-Corning regional airport, and the Rochester Challenger Learning Center for a simulated “Mission to Mars”.
