What is Artemis?

The Artemis program is a human spaceflight program that is being led by NASA. The primary goal of Artemis is to return humans to the Moon by 2025. NASA will lead an innovative and sustainable program of exploration with commercial and international partners to send humans farther into space and bring back to Earth new knowledge and opportunities. The Apollo Generation witnessed humanity’s first steps on the Moon in the 1960s—now, we are the Artemis Generation.  

NASA & Artemis in South Texas

NASA’s Artemis program is made possible through commercial partners located throughout the US. Amongst those partners is SpaceX, the aerospace company contracted to build the program’s Human Landing System (HLS) which will land astronauts on the Moon. This Lunar Lander will be one of many variations of the Starship reusable spacecraft being built on Boca Chica Beach (aka Starbase) near Brownsville, Texas.

Generation Artemis

The Artemis mission will solidify the long-term presence of NASA in South Texas. As the  NASA Community Anchor Awardee, STARS will host a series of family-friendly Space Camps in summer 2022 to educate the community in Artemis through STEM engagement. Additionally, local high school students will gain authentic experience through the NASA STEM Enhancement in Earth Science (SEES) summer intern program.

Artemis Space Camp 2022

We Are going! are you?

NASA’s mission is to return humans to the Moon by 2025 through the Artemis program. Our mission is to guide students in greater Rio Grande Valley to become future explorers — a part of Generation Artemis! 

STARS will be hosting the first edition of Artemis Space Camp in summer 2022. Students will have 3 separate camp dates to choose from: June 11, June 25, and July 9. The space camps will be hosted at Rocket Ranch, about 10 miles from SpaceX’s Starship facilities off of Boca Chica in Brownsville. During these dates, students will learn about rocketry, space exploration, NASA’s Artemis program, and more through a series of exciting, hands-on STEM activities.
