How does an "Ongoing" course work?

Meets on a weekly schedule, join any week, no need to catch up on previous material
Live video chats, recorded and monitored for safety and quality
Discussions via classroom forum and private messages with the teacher
Automatic payment every Sunday, cancel any time
Great for clubs and for practicing skills

Class Experience

Students will learn:
-how quickly space technology is advancing
-how soon they might be able to move to Mars
-how there can be setbacks in this kind of progress when testing has explosive results
-how perseverance and progress go hand in hand

They will also learn discussion skills and might pick up some rocket science
I am a licensed Ham Radio Operator, and I've built rockets and made rocket fuels in the past. (We will NOT be teaching learners how to make their own rocket fuel in this class).
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
There will be footage shared of (unmanned) rockets crash-landing.
As we cover current events, there may be reasons to share footage of manned rockets crash-landing. (Parents will be notified in advance if this becomes possible)
