Description

Rockets are a human engineering marvel, and as we prepare to become a space-faring civilization, the demand for rocket engineers will increase. Understanding how rockets work, how they are made and what we can do with them is crucial.

In this class, you enter our virtual world and together with your teammates learn about rockets by running science experiments and honing your engineering skills by building your own, life-sized rockets which you can use to fly away. You’ll get a great understandig of scientific and engineering principles behind rockets.

We provide free loaner VR headsets if you don’t have one.
