Plan a Visit: The IKS Artemis Charger is part of the all-new Education Immersion Center that launched in late 2015.
Launch Date: Fall, 2015
History: Located inside a brand new wing of Colegio Internacional de Carabobo, an international school in Valencia, this new simulator takes students on educational adventures like no other. The simulator, the IKS Artemis Charger, 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.”
The IKS Artemis Charger is run by Todd Lichtenwalter, tech mentor and science curriculum coordinator at the school, and provides educational adventures for students in grades 3-12. 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.
The project has been in development since summer 2014, with construction beginning in mid April 2015. An entirely new building has been built to house the new simulator classroom.
The Artemis Charger marks the first step of our mission to bring immersive simulator-based education to students around the world. We’re thrilled to be working with Colegio Internacional de Carabobo, as its individualized an co-curricular programs truly make it stand out as a model school in Latin America.
