Introduction to Rockets

In Introduction to Rockets, you learn the scientific and engineering principles behind rockets in a hands-on manner.

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.

After Introduction to Rockets, you will have learned:

  • General understanding of scientific and engineering principles behind rockets
  • Practical insights into how rockets are made, which materials are used and different kinds of rockets
  • A deep dive into the workings of rocket engines
  • A great understanding of rocket fuels and how they are made


The class meets for 8 sessions (each one hour).

Introduction to Rockets is recommended for 13-16-year-olds (younger and older also possible). To participate, you need to have an Oculus Go or Samsung Gear VR. We provide a limited number of loaner units (please indicate in enrollment form).
