Starting today, our games can be used for free for education. Educators now have access to download the Windows and Mac versions of SimpleRockets 2 and SimplePlanes (DRM-free) and install them on any number of classroom computers.

We've heard many great things over the years about how teachers are using our games in the classroom. They lend themselves well to teaching physics concepts and students seem to enjoy them. Fundamental concepts such as velocity, acceleration, gravity, lift, drag, etc can easily be demonstrated with an airplane or a rocket hurtling through the atmosphere at hypersonic speeds and that has a way of grabbing and maintaining a student's attention. SimpleRockets 2 goes a step further and can demonstrate advanced concepts such as orbital mechanics and many other rocket science concepts.

If you are an educator, just visit this page and click the Submit Request button. After we review your request, you will be given access to the downloads page where you can freely download our games for Windows and Mac.

If you are a student, help spread the word and let your teachers know!

    Our of curiosity, is there any actual differences on the EDU version than the normal version?

    @AndrewGarrison this is a very charitable thing to do with your games, I fully support your offering the games to educators for free with no DRM included. This is a great idea, and I wish I had access to these titles when I was in primary school, I know it would've helped me perform even better in the science courses I took later on in university. I recommend that your team send emails or posts on these forums to educators (once they've gotten their students playing the games) about design challenges for students. Perhaps you could even setup a web-page on this domain that shares each challenge's finalists and winning designs via a short web article celebrating their achievements. That would go a long way toward enhancing science education and improving students' knowledge retention internationally. Keep up the great work, Jundroo! :)

    Yes! If I tell this to my physics teacher, we'll learn like a thousand times more fast. (even though I have already learned a lot with SR2, xd)
