About This Activity

Just about everyone has heard of Minecraft, but there is another computer game phenomenon that is just as much fun and much more educational. It’s called Kerbal Space Program, and its popularity is skyrocketing. In this computer based camp, students will learn how to use the game software to create and manage their own mini –space program. They construct virtual rockets, launch them into orbit and attempt to do a variety of NASA like activities like dock with a space station, land on the moon, or attempt to mine an asteroid. Although this is a computer game, playing it is not as whimsical as one would think. Students must learn and apply some basic physics, math, engineering and even a little or- bital mechanics as they attempt to become virtual test pilots and astronauts. It’s not just a kid’s computer game, it actually IS rocket science. This class is geared toward the older students and will move quicker and include more advanced topics. We also offer this class geared toward younger students.
