ESA is sponsoring two students from ESA Member and Cooperating States to attend the European Space Camp at Andøya Rocket Range, Norway from 31 July to 7 August 2014. Applications should be submitted before 1 April.

Every year the European Space Camp (ESC) is held at Andøya Rocket Range in Norway for students aged between 17 and 20 years old. During the space camp, students go through every aspect of a rocket campaign, including building an internal circuitry for a rocket, telemetry, and launching a full-fledged sounding rocket at the end of the week. Participants attend lectures from some of Europe's top scientists and researchers on topics as diverse as the LHC at CERN to the physics behind the Northern Lights. At the end of an unforgettable week, a multitude of social activities await the participants, including a whale safari, mountain hiking and swimming under the midnight sun.
