Description

Class Experience

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.
