NASA's shuttle program may (quite sadly) be halted, but your students will still enjoy flying to space with the free NASA KLASS program.
Developed and funded by NASA, the Kennedy Launch Academy Simulation System (KLASS) program is an exciting way to bring the space shuttle program into your classroom. If you are looking for creative ways to develop STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) skills with your learners, you are in the right place! The KLASS program has three components, freely available to you:
- Curriculum. Over 40 hours of lesson plans and interactive materials. You can pick and choose from these resources even if you do not run the software.
- Assessment. The entire program has an assessment system that focuses on the three main roles that students can play in KLASS: biomedical, engine/external tank, and weather.
- Software. Allows you to set-up and run a networked space shuttle simulation. This is a role-based model that ends with a space shuttle launch in the classroom!
How to Get This Freebie: Visit NASA KLASS
For Grades 6-12
