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 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). I have successfully taught this popular class for almost a year. I am currently featured as one of Outschool's EPIC teachers:
Learners are encouraged to watch Rocket Launches, Space Walks, and other events live as they are able
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)
