The Kerbal Space program is a game that enables the player to build spacecraft, fly them, and try to keep the alien-race – the Kerbals – alive as they set out to explore the solar system.
But really it’s just an out-of-this-world way to engage your students or your own kids in technology and space science!
There are three modes the game can be played in:
- Science Mode – perform space experiments to unlock new technology and advance the knowledge of Kerbal-kind
- Career Mode – oversee every aspect of the space program, including construction, strategy, funding, upgrades, and more
- Sandbox – build any spacecraft you can think of, with all parts and technology in the game.
