super_luminal_showA choose-your-own-adventure-style experience for Grades 9-12

Go faster-than-light on a fictional survey mission to another star in this exclusive hands-on, multi-environment experience designed specifically for high school students (with a different level of mission for each grade – can be tailored to specific courses.)

Inspired by movies like Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar and 2001: A Space Odyssey, this truly unique interactive show tasks science classes with:

  • deciding on what ship to take
  • how to manage life on that ship for the journey (Grade 11 & 12 missions)
  • super_luminal_show2manage a crisis that arises on the ship en-route (Grade 12 mission)
  • what planet to explore
  • planetside missions ranging from collecting info to getting out of a dangerous situation to finding the way to the final objective
  • and what to do if they reach their ultimate goal: To find life elsewhere in the universe.
