It's Rocket Science!  Ages 9-13 

Option STR 6: Science and Kerbal Space Program

This exciting program takes our future astronauts to a whole new level. Please view our Parent Letter.

Students will begin to understand the principals of flight and rocketry while designing and building rockets.  Students will learn to play Kerbal Space Program, which uses real physics and math skills to build and launch rockets that can survive the forces exerted onto the spacecraft exiting our atmosphere.  Can they land their rocket and fulfill their mission?

  • Your child will be very excited as they get to make and use bottle rockets, chemical rockets and Estes rockets.
  • As we construct and test our rockets, the students will incorporate design changes to maximize successful flight goals.
  • Students will gain a great understanding of rocket propulsion and control using the Kerbal Space Program.
