Description

Class Experience

By the end of the class, students should be able to:

♦ Know how to use a star wheel to locate constellations in the night sky.
♦ Recall some stories of animals from the constellation mythologies of several different cultures.
♦ Provide a basic outline of early space exploration for the United States and Russia (with a focus on animal explorers, of course!)
♦ Understand the motives behind sending animals into space during the Space Race.
♦ Explain the role of animals on the International Space Station.
♦ Compare and contrast the current animals in space (and their purpose) with the animals put into space in the 60s and 70s.
♦ Recall some of the discoveries made by studying the behavior of animals in space.
♦ Understand the ethical considerations when using animals for research in space.
♦ List the three "ingredients" required for life.
♦ Speculate on where we might find alien animals in our solar system and beyond.
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
The history of animals in space does involve some animal deaths, which more sensitive children might find disturbing.
