The Informed Rocketeers Retention Game is for use by educators. It enables educators to encompass the knowledge available in the NASA Glenn’s Beginner's Guide to Rockets in a format that will allow students to demonstrate their basic knowledge of rocket science through experimental, academic, physical and/or computer based experimental activities.

Flexibility

    • Can be played with teams of one or more students
    • Activities can be added or excluded easily
    • Can include one or all of the sections
      * Experimental
      * Academic
      * Physical
      * Computer Based Experimental (web access necessary)

Procedure

    If only one section is being utilized
    1. Pull out the activity from the activities of activities
    2. Begin timer when the teams start the activities
    3. The first team to correctly complete the activity receives the activity points
    4. Follow steps one through three throughout the duration of the game
    5. When all activities have been completed the team with the most points wins
