Space Program Simulation
Have you ever wanted to run your own space program? You could build a space station in orbit, explore another planet with a rover, or even send astronauts to the moon and back. In this class, students learned the basics of rocket science such as building rockets, calculating orbits, and managing resources in order to reach their mission goals. Students learned these skills in Kerbal Space Program, a realistic physics-based space exploration and rocket construction computer game. The solar system was within their reach!
