International Space Camp is designed to provide students and educators
from around the world the opportunity to share ideas, hopes and
dreams for future cooperative space and educational ventures. With
endorsements from such world leaders as former Vice President Dan
Quayle, former England Prime Minister Margared Thatcher and retired
astronaut John Glenn, the program's beginning was earmarked for
success. Beginning in 1990 with 20 countries participating, the
program has grown in both recognition and attendance. One such accomplishment
is the formation of the International Space Education Initiative
document. The goal of this document is to inspire educators to structure
different ways in which we, as a unified world, can use "space"
across the curriculum to inspire and teach the world's youth.
