‘Jedi Experience’ takes off at U.S. Space Camp

Events

jedi-experienceThe U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, Ala. — home of every kid’s summer dream, Space Camp — is offering a special program this summer called the “Jedi Experience” for a limited time between June 25 and Sept. 6, 2010.

You’d better have the forces of the Banking Clan on your side: The program costs an Imperial sum of $450 per camper — or $900 for a parent-child ticket — for the three-day (Monday-Wednesday) program. That includes a log book, pen, T-shirt, graduation certificate and team photo. Participants must be between the ages of 7 and 12.

What else do you get for all those hard-earned Republic credits?

Here’s a description from the event’s website:

The Jedi Experience’s main focus will be upon the principles and moral codes surrounding the training of a Jedi and an educational look into the scientific, technological, historical and cultural trappings of the Star Wars universe while making real world parallels.

Each team will be guided through their training by a Jedi instructor and camp’s events will take place in various Star Wars themed classrooms and of course the Star Wars traveling exhibit.

That exhibit would be “Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination,” which by itself costs only $30 per person and uses all six Star Wars films to examine the technologies of today and tomorrow:
