Description

Class Experience

Learners will find discover more about our solar system and the planets it contains. We will explore the different types of planets, and consider what they would be like to visit.
I am an astronomer who loves to talk about science and space. My passion for science started as a kid, and continued right through to a PhD, so that I am now a Doctor of Astronomy. I worked as a research astronomer for many years as well, and spent time using large international telescopes including the Gemini telescopes in Hawaii and Chile, and the Hubble telescope in space. When it comes to communication this knowledge, I also wanted to learn more. This interest in teaching & learning, obtaining a Postgraduate Certificate in Education.
Keep talking about space!
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
The external resources listed here are to give you some great resources for additional information and hand on activities. No accounts are required to access this information and they are not required learning for the course. I have only included information from highly recognised space agencies that provided sound scientific activities that are fun to explore. These include NASA (the National Aeronautics and Space Administration) for both grade K-4 and 5-8, the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) and the European Space Agency (ESA). Each of these four links provide you with a wealth of scientifically sounds resources, made by scientists for kids. Feel free to explore and think up more questions to ask an astronomer, in Let's Talk Space.
