What Should be posted here?

I would like to rename this post as to a mission for KEDU but I don't know what exactly your looking for in a mission...

Anyone care to elaborate?

I know THAT-

I'm asking for what kind of mission thing are you guys looking for? I want to put something here but I don't know your specifications etc...

I'd suggest looking at the KerbalEDU Mission Library for examples. This forum is a good place to share missions so that others can critique them.

You'll want to include:

  • A narrative description of the lesson
  • Grade and/or age ranges for the students
  • Specific learning objectives
  • Lesson plan
  • Ways to assess how much each student learned from the lesson
  • Educational standards that the lesson meets

Thank you! I will try to make the best I can to excercise the materials I can use!

I'd like a free version of KEDU so I dont have to buy simply to know how the modified version works.

Alright for those watching- I'm planning on a moon landing exercise to show velocities and how three deminsions can affect your velocity changes (thrust)- Or go with a docking exercise which is loaded with science stuff :P:) So I hope you enjoy what I'm working on :) .

Ok I have narrowed it down I will be making a DOCKING style video and the science on that... little bit of the Kepler and so on :) .

Alright- So my plan is that I'm going to make this a "group assignment" and try to add some other parts to this that REAL astronauts would've encountered such as remaining in orbit for 2 weeks for one group and the other must rendezvous- ofc this is a WIP and I will announce anymore progress when I make any.

Still working on the details- BUT I can post a word search for you to use in the mean time :) .

Would competition rules be appropriate here? As a director of Aerospace Education for one of the Civil Air Patrol states and a past technology education teacher in the public schools (30 + years), Etc. It has been my privilege to introduce KSP to students (Cadets) as well as adults (seniors). Come conference time the plan is to have a computer lab open for competition of: 1- first to get to orbit. 2 - First to circle the Mun and get back safely. 3 - First to land on the Mun and get back safely. There will be prizes associated with the competition and we will be using the free version (vers 18?). The big Aerospace Education activity however will be the quad copter missions planned (Sorry KSP). Nothing like a real drone to interest people. :-)

I appreciate your background but I don't understand the question- Are you wanting me to make it a cooperative competition? If you want something to "Race" for- then that's MUCH easier to devise a situation for than what I'm planning.

Not so much a question but hopefully adding in a positive way an exchange of ideas of ways to reach others in inspiring learning. Competition along with things like code writing for games may help. Different way's to use KSP to help others learn (kids and adults) shared to inspire and so forth. Gleaning from others what type of things, activities and ways of teaching help others. If my ideas help then good if not then I will keep silent. Non the less I hope this grows to help others in inspiring others.

Agreed and I see your point now :) . I definitely hope KerbalEDU does get off the ground as I've been watching it for a long time and I don't want to see it go now.

EDIT:

Still working on the specifics guys :) haven't forgotten about this :D .

What, no word search? :sticktongue:

Sounds good. Looking forward to this "Kerbal EDU" thing.

I've used KSP myself multiple times to demonstrate basic orbital dynamics and the Oberth effect to others. Real useful, I've gotta say.

KSPEdu is the educational version modified for teaching the basics of physics and astrophysics in depth. 

I do believe you have to purchase it even if you own KSP as its separate entity intended for schools.
