Description

Go on an interactive exploration and learning adventure with Billiebean and help her fulfill her dream to get to outer space. See what happens when you have a great desire to do something and what a bit of committed work and imaginative thinking can do for you. On your mission with Billiebean, you will learn how high outer space is from the surface of Earth and whether or not there really is gravity in outer space. You will also learn about the individual parts of a rocket, what types of materials they are built with, how rocket engines work, the main instruments on the rockets instrument control panel and how to navigate a rocket in the rocket simulator (which simulates how you would control a real rocket). With your assistance, you will even help Billiebean build her very own rocket. To bring the rocket back to Earth safely, you will learn about the layers of Earth’s atmosphere and the special material that’s used to ensure that the rocket is protected. You might even help Billiebean launch the rocket and help her to navigate the rocket through the atmosphere for a safe landing back on Earth. It all depends on how adventurous you are… and you may even discover all the planets of our solar system if you do get to outer space…

DISCLAIMER: Parents, please note that the rocket simulator offers an option to rotate the rocket which could cause a sense of disorientation/vertigo for those who are sensitive to motion sickness.
