Hi, I'm one of the founders of Kosmos School.

Our ambition is to build the first K-12 school in virtual reality. We're starting by offering single classes targeting 13-15-year-olds.

Kosmos is a project-based school, and in our first class the objective is to build a rocket. The project team consists of 5 students plus one teacher.

Our first class (https://kosmosschool.com/project/rocket-escape/) premiers on November and is already booked out, with another 170 students on the waitlist.

Today, we launched a Kickstarter in order so raise some money and get the attention VR enthusiastic parents who we think might be hanging out on Kickstarter (and here on HN of course).

If you want to help us, pledging a small amount and/or sharing the Kickstarter link will go a long way.

Happy to answer any questions.


Yeah, thanks for sharing! Forgot to add it in my comment, but it's also on the Kickstarter page!
