The MassMutual Jr Space Camp Programme is inviting students aged seven to 12 to join a five-day astronaut training camp in the US in August.

To be a 'Jr Astronaut', you have to submit a creative work on the topic 'If I walked in space - it is possible!' to MassMutual before June 26.

Fifty outstanding applicants and their parents will be invited to a two-day camp in early July. They will compete for the final places by attending workshops and taking tests on communication skills, space knowledge and analysis ability.

Six Jr Astronauts will be selected from 15 finalists after a face-to-face interview in mid-July.
