Description

Class Experience

Students will learn about when rockets were invented, how they were used in the past, and how they are used today. They will also learn about spacecraft. 
I have taught coding, science and engineering for 3 years at schools across New Jersey. 
At the end of the class I will provide resources so learners can find out more about rockets. There will be no homework. 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
At the end of class I will review what we learned and have a short quiz. 
40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
During class there will be a short YouTube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1yBwWLunlOM
We will refer to primary and secondary sources in this class to get multiple perspectives. We will look at NASA material that provides a graphic showing the parts of a rocket, and we will also look at a primary source, a photo of Alan Shepard, an astronaut who traveled in space, and we will talk about how the experience was like for him. 

To understand the history behind rockets, we will refer to the European Space Agency's site which provides relevant information, and discuss the first rockets 800 years ago.
