While each mission in the Space Lab utilizes an engaging atmosphere to grab students’ attention, the mechanics used at each level encourage students to utilize knowledge gained in the classroom.

In turn, it reports back to teachers with data taken from the students’ performance, allowing teachers to reach individual students’ needs and classroom trends.
