New Videos from the Dream Flight Adventures Powered Experiential Simulator, IKS Artemis Charger, in Valencia, Venezuela. John Glenn Dead. The Imaginarium.

Videos from Our Friends on the IKS Artemis Charger in Valencia, Venezuela

     To date there are nineteen experiential simulators located in Utah under the direction of several different schools. Some of the simulators use missions, software, and curriculum from InfiniD, others from Alpine School District's Christa McAuliffe Space Education Center.
     One thing all nineteen simulators have in common is their heritage. Each can trace its conceptual origin back to the first simulator of its kind, the USS Voyager which I created in 1990 at Central Elementary School, Pleasant Grove, Utah.  
     Today the use of simulator based experiential learning environments inspired by the USS Voyager is spreading worldwide through companies like Dream Flight Adventures.  The IKS Artemis Charger is one such simulator.             
     Today I'd like to share three videos from the IKS Artemis Charger, a Dream Flight Adventures simulator directed by Todd Lichtenwalter, tech mentor and science curriculum coordinator at the Colegio Internacional de Carabobo, an international school in Valencia,Venezuela.

     The IKS Artemis Charger takes students on educational adventures like no other. The ship is the crowning component of the school’s new Education Immersion Center.  The center has been designed from the ground up—literally—to create “learning spaces that engage students in open ended questioning and collaborative problem solving by being immersive, interactive, interdisciplinary, innovative, and interesting.”
     True to Dream Flight’s cross-disciplinary program, each subject teacher at the school is contributing content to the simulator missions, which directly address each classroom’s curriculum and standards. 
     Please enjoy watching our friends on the IKS Artemis Charger and the hard work of their teacher Todd Lichtenwalter.

Alert!  In the middle of an epic mission, the IKS Artemis Charger was hit by a Denubian freeze ray and frozen in time!  Admiral Sai was the only one unaffected, so he leapt into action with his camera and documented the whole scene.

Godspeed John Glenn

     John Glenn, the first American astronaut to orbit the earth and a legendary figure in the American space flight program, has died, the Ohio governor has said. He was 95. Glenn was one of America's first and most celebrated astronauts and had a long public career that included two space flights, 24 years as a U.S. Senator from Ohio, and a run for the presidency. He was born July 18, 1921. Glenn will go down in history as the first American to orbit the earth, one of the original seven Mercury astronauts. On Feb. 20, 1962, he climbed into his Friendship 7 capsule, lifted off from Cape Canaveral in Florida, circled the earth three times in five hours -- and became a national hero.
