Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Learners should be able to read independently.
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)
