Class Experience

Students will learn the scientific life-cycle of a star from a cloud of super heated gasses, to yellow-life giving suns, to violent supernovas or black holes. We will then describe the history and mythology of constellations which appear in numerous pop-culture incarnations like Draco the Dragon in Harry Potter and Hercules. I will conclude by giving practical tips on how to observe and find a few constellations like Draco, The Big Dipper, and the six visible planets from one's own backyard.
I will send digital worksheets as PDFs that the students may fill out during the class. They can then upload the completed worksheet for a digital badge and certificate. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
