The Manitoba Space Adventure Camp launched from the University of Manitoba this week.

High school students from grade nine to 11 participated in activities involving aerospace theory and concepts.

Events were held in the university's Engineering and Information Technology Complex.

The Manitoba Space Adventure Camp is a 5-day program of both presentations and hands-on activities.

Throughout the week, students learned space physics and rocket theory, satellite communications and amateur radio.

On July 16, the camp moved to University Stadium, where small, student-made rockets launched, sending them hundreds of feet in the air before peacefully landing back down on Earth.
