Description

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
By the end of this class, learners will have a basic understanding of asterisms, constellations, planetary motion, and night sky navigation.  
I have a bachelor of science degree in astronomy & astrophysics from Penn State University with 3 years of experience as a planetarium presenter where I taught primarily high school groups in my live presentations. I am a scientific content partner with the Africa Space Institute where I create and present online classes for high school students in Africa. I have also been an astronomy tutor for high school students since 2019. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
