Class Overview

Rocket Escape

In Rocket Escape, our first project, you find yourself stranded on a foreign, fantastic planet called Arbel-14 with four of your friends. Pretty soon, you’ll discover that the only way out is to build a rocket that you can use to escape.

Of course, building a rocket is no easy feat and in order to reach your objective you’ll need to gain an understanding of the necessary math, physics, chemistry and material sciences. But no worries, the project is guided by one of our teachers that’s always right there with you and your teammates in virtual reality.

Rocket Escape is recommended for kids from ages 13-16 (younger and older also possible) that have a basic understanding of math, physics, and chemistry. The total duration of the project is about 8 hours. Usually, you will need to spend the same amount of hours to read up on topics that you are not familiar with outside the class hours. So it’s a good idea to plan with that. If have questions or are unsure if this is the right thing for your kid, contact us at hello@kosmosschool.com.

Money-back guarantee: Our goal is to provide an outstanding learning and fun experience to your kid. If for whatever reason you weren’t happy with a project, we will fully refund your money. No questions asked.
