The Blue Origin New Shepard in the Classroom

The Blue Origin New Shepard Builder Kit is designed to be paired with Mission Bravo Oscar. This mission allows students to simulate a real Blue Origin mission right inside your classroom or camp! Different job assignments are given to students that need to be completed for the mission to be a success. The focus is primarily on teamwork and how different skills can be brought together to launch a rocket. The mission criteria below describes what the students will be working towards!

Mission Objective

Blue Origin’s New Shepard Rocket is a vertical-takeoff, vertical-landing, crew-rated suborbital launch vehicle that is being developed as a commercial system for suborbital space tourism. Blue Origin is switching propulsion systems to solid propellant. Students must work together to determine which engine size is the best choice thinking about altitude, velocity, and acceleration the type of payload that will be launched.

Mission Bravo Oscar is complete when the following criteria are met:

· Appropriate personnel are identified, hired, and work effectively together.

· The mission launch is captured in a mission patch, website, video, news article, and social media.

A New Shepard rocket is safely built, transported, launched, and recovered after testing 3 engine types in an appropriate time frame.
