hour of code – Moon Lander

Take your coding skills to the stars and learn how to code using some Physics concepts in order to safely land a spaceship

Learn Physics as you Code

Moon Lander is a Game Builder course with that guides students on how to build their
own physics-based game. In the game, students use code and 6-9th grade physics concepts in order
to help a spaceship land safely. Along the way, they will learn about the power of gravity, understand
the meaning of thrust force and learn more advanced concepts in coding and game desig

Teacher’s Notes
