What determines a planet's climate? Is it the speed it moves around its axis? Or its distance from the Sun? Students get to tinker with an accessible universe simulator that provides these answers and more.
Students having trouble understanding what Pascals are? Or what the astronomical unit "au" exactly is? Able to control every variable, players will develop a practical sense of larger-than-life units.
Believe it or not, the Moon is just one variable among many! By playing with it, students can trigger and observe lunar cycles and eclipses, watching celestial objects interact with each other.
