Are you already familiar with the cosmos, but want to take your understanding further? If you are interested in astronomy and want to understand the cosmos, then this 8-week class can help you advance your understanding of the universe and all of its complexities. We will cover how objects form in the cosmos, the fundamental forces, and the large and small universe. We will look at the foundational ideas we know when we are first introduced to the universe, but this time we will talk about...
Learners will gain a more complex and deep level of understanding of our current knowledge of astrophysics and the universe.
Natasha has taught astronomy to learners from age 3 and up for 7 years through science outreach programs and activities. She studies science and focuses on physics, astronomy, and Earth science, and has been an amateur astronomer since she was a young learner herself!
Learners may wish to complete supplemental activities that I will post, which I am more than happy to provide feedback on, including the opportunity to ask me any questions they have about the work. This is optional.
Printable worksheets will be provided.
I will provide formal assessment upon request.
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
We will explore concepts, such as the death of our sun and our universe, that some learners may be sensitive to. I am happy to provide reassurance to learners as these events take place billions and trillions of years in the future.
Textbooks utilized in the course of my degree, National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), European Space Agency (ESA), European Southern Observatory (ESO), Cosmo Quest, Fermilab, Conseil Européen pour la Recherche Nucléaire (CERN), Swinburne University of Technology, and more.
