Abstract: This mixed methods study examined the effect of Astronaut Challenge, an immersive, flight-simulation-based learning program, on the collaborative learning process and science knowledge development of high-school students (9th graders). The study findings suggested that simulation-based collaborative learning activities promoted students’ scientific understanding about the dynamics of the space flight system. Although the knowledge test results did not indicate a significant differential effect of the two immersive settings (exclusive space versus classroom flight simulator) on the learning outcome, qualitative findings suggested that the higher level of the sensory immersion in a simulation-based learning environment may foster engagement while impeding collaborative conceptual understanding.
