This week, the European Space Agency in partnership with Airbus Foundation and Autodesk, announced the winners of the Moon Camp Challenge. In the competition, student groups across three different age ranges were challenged to imagine and design a lunar habitat.

The challenge was taken up by over 850 students around the world, and you can read the full list of winners across all three categories on the ESA Education blog. In this post, however, we will take a closer look at the six winning Tinkercad designs in the 12 and under category.
