Program details
"To the Moon and Back" Exupery Camp Shift is all about adventure, dreaming, and the desire to touch the unknown. Alongside this, it’s about making things real and achieving far-reaching goals: diving into science, using creative and scientific thinking, exploring engineering, physics, astronomy, design, the history of space exploration, and the evolution of human thought in this field.

Besides, the Moon has always fascinated and accompanied humanity through the ages, symbolizing mystery and secrets, inspiration and creativity, art and storytelling, poetry and beauty, darkness and light. We will dive into creative projects and workshops together, getting excited about these fascinating ideas related to the history and heritage of humankind.

We blend poetics and science, a genuine aspiration for the future where moon landings are not just possible but a part of life, with a creative component, artistic fiction, and boundless imagination where fantasy and creative experiments fill life with joy and meaning.
