“But Science is Boring”…

AeroEngineer: Race to Mars™ , the latest game in our Mission Control series is anything but! AeroEngineer was created to make complex concepts like aerospace engineering less intimidating and much more fun. Whether you’re struggling to get your kids interested in science, looking for an engaging supplement to lectures, or are in need of STEM content for after-school activities, AeroEngineer is a great option for home or the classroom.

Each AeroEngineer mission has unique objectives and specifications that challenge players to use their problem solving skills every time they log-in. Players will have to think hard to weigh design and structure choices and will have to learn to examine frame factors, design trade offs, and use systems approaches to engineering. This game is compatible with PC and Mac.
