Looks like an interesting program, very ambitious. I hope that they're able to pull it off.
The idea that there's on-line work required prior to arrival is interesting. I'm not certain how they're going to mandate that. But, given the academic nature of the program, I think it would be important and would free up the onsite program to be able to do more of the advanced and hands on activities rather than having to start off each session with the basic vocabulary and math skills and then build from there.
I'd love to see Space Camp go back to a more academic program, at least for the higher levels.
