How I Use It
This app could be used in physics classes or math and science classes. Students use the app to build rockets and then can launch, orbit, dock and land the rockets. They have to figure out designs to make a survivable rocket and then can see how different designs orbit differently, have different trajectories, etc. The graphics for this game are crystal clear and engaging, and there are enough options, from basic to advanced, to keep students interested for many sessions.
I think this app could be very useful to reinforce physics classes, however, there needs to be some direction/ information from the teacher about why certain rocket designs don't work, why others work better, etc. The app doesn't TEACH, it only reinforces what students would be learning in a physics or advanced science class.
