Send a Spacecraft into Orbit

Rocket Science 101 is an iPad app offered by NASA to help students understand how rockets work. The app also helps students understand the differences between the four types of rockets most frequently used by NASA. In Rocket Science 101, students can build all four rockets in a jigsaw-like activity and then virtually launch their rockets. When the rockets are launched, students see the timing of each stage of the launch, from surface to orbit. After investigating the four types of rockets, students can try matching rockets to real NASA missions. In the challenges, students read about a NASA mission and then select the rocket that can carry the payload and travel the distance required to complete the mission. Cost: Free
