International Space Camp LogoInternational Space Camp 2009 begins this weekend! Already students and teachers from around the world are en route, and kids and teachers from all over the world will be descending upon the U.S. Space & Rocket Center by Saturday Morning.

No doubt the fine staff of Space Camp and the U.S. Space & Rocket Center are working hard to make sure International Space Camp goes off without a hitch and is an experience our international friends won’t soon forget!

The International Space Camp Opening Ceremony has to be, by far, one of my most favorite things.

The Opening Ceremony is scheduled for 5pm in the Davidson Center theater.

Each year, the students and teachers from each country spend a few minutes to introduce the audience to their place of origin. The presentations are always educational and are often truly quite funny!

I can’t wait to see what this year’s groups have in store!

Keep checking back as I’ll once again post my favorite countries’ presentations!
