Description

Class Experience

Students will not only stretch their creativity, research, and construction skills, but we will together be learning the science behind how Rockets, Orbital Mechanics, and Astrodynamics all work together. (Both inside the game, and in real life!)
During the week, tackle the challenge that we came up with and brainstormed together!
PREREQUISITE FOR THIS CLASS: Your learner must have Kerbal Space Program, (Discount link available) know how to play Kerbal Space Program, be able to achieve a steady orbit using maneuver nodes, & understand what this means. If your learner does not have the prerequisite for this class please contact the teacher before enrolling and you will be provided with helpful tutorial links.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.

If your learner does not have the prerequisite for this class please contact the teacher before enrolling and you will be provided with helpful tutorial links. 
It will be required to own a copy of Kerbal Space Program, and have a computer capable of running it. 
(If you have a newer gaming console, it is an option to get the game for the console instead, but this can be much more challenging to use vs. a keyboard and mouse, so I don't recommend it)
