Kerbal Space Program is a wonderfully silly spaceship-building game that’s currently in beta. Fans of all ages have found the game, but now a new version is coming to entice teachers to hop on board the video game train.
Known as KerbalEdu, this modified Kerbal Space Program will come with premade lesson plans and a stronger focus on teaching young players scientific concepts. Developer Squad, in partnership with TeacherGaming, has committed to the project (but don’t worry, they’re still working on the main game too).
Interested educators can head over to the KerbalEdu site to learn more or place an order. Any schools that do make the purchase will also be able to offer discounted copies of Kerbal Space Program to students.
