Rockets ' n' Sprockets

Rockets ' n' Sprockets

2 days

Rockets 'n' Sprockets is designed for students from ages 8 to 14.

Students will explore physics, engineering and automation through two custom games and maps in advanced STEM-based educational games; Kerbal Space Program and Factorio.

Kerbal Space Program is a game where players create and manage their own space program - manned by kerbals. Our tutors focus on the basic engineering and physics principles behind spaceflight and students will design, build and fly their own spacecraft.

Factorio is a game where the player designs, builds and maintains factories. Students will mine resources from base components, research technologies and build infrastructure to automate production lines. This game develops "programmatic" thinking by encouraging players to approach problems from base components and plan solutions ahead of time.
