Astronomy for Kids Using Actual Observatory Telescopes! (STEM / STEAM / Space )
Quantum Physics for Kids
In this course, students learn to use real observatory telescopes in Chile & the Canary Islands to explore a wide range of astronomy topics! They will also take high-quality images with the telescopes ( STEM / STEAM / Summer ) #academic
US Grade 3 - 6
Does your child love astronomy, NASA or all things space? This course gives kids the opportunity to experience controlling a professional observatory telescope via remote control, just like a real astronomer! Most astronomers don't live on-site at the observatories, but instead observe and control the telescope from a distance via special tools. Through a partnership with educational telescope provider Slooh, this course teaches students how to use observatory telescopes located in the Canary...
Week-by-week Course Topics: Session 1: Introduction to using Slooh observatory tools and navigating the software Session 2: Introduction to the constellations Session 3: Our Sun Session 4: Our Moon Session 5: Distances of space objects - Solar System, Milky Way and Deep Space Session 6: Distant Stars Session 7: Planets in Our Solar System Session 8: Far Planets Session 9: Milky Way Galaxy Session 10: Star Clusters Session 11: Nebulae Session 12: Types of Galaxies
This course is taught by Quantum Physics for Kids instructor Prof. Mark Baraket (M.S. Astrophysics), a professional astronomer with a commitment to teaching the next generation of scientists. Quantum Physics for Kids is dedicated to introducing young students to the amazing world of quantum physics, invention & science research! We've been offering STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math) classes and creating educational materials for students of all ages for over 15 years. We're excited to share this course content with more students through Outschool.
Assessments OfferedLearner progress will be assessed through class participation and student image-taking of astronomical phenomena.
Recommended course materials: $30/year Student Subscription to Slooh remote telescope services to use during the course. A link to sign-up at the discounted student rate will be emailed upon registration. Note: If your learner is not interested in capturing their own telescope images, it is also possible to take this course to learn about Astronomy, without using a Slooh telescope account.
This course utilizes the remote telescope service "Slooh" to provide access to live telescope images during class time and between classes for optional homework activities. The cost to use the Slooh telescope tools is $30 for a 1-year student subscription. A link to the Slooh webiste is listed in the 3rd party tools section.
We're excited to support your child in exploring quantum physics, science and inventions! Our classes are designed to get kids excited about physics and its impact on our lives, while supporting students in developing critical thinking skills. Our...
