What Students Say

I think it’s a fantastic way to get young kids interested in Space. I really enjoyed the problem solving aspects!

It was my first experience in VR and it was incredible! I got to complete challenges and drive a rover.

VR in general is pretty fun, but combined with space exploration and driving a rover, it was amazing!
