Description

Class Experience

Students will learn about:
- Daily life on the ISS
- The different parts of the ISS
- How to see the ISS fly over their house, no telescope or binoculars needed -- it's an amazing sight!
- The science being done on board
- Why is it up there in the first place?

And much more!
I have been a science teacher for the last 13 years.  I have taken a huge interest in the workings of NASA and SpaceX and am well versed in both.  I love seeing the newest rockets, space flights, and experiments they do.  I even own a heat shield tile from the space shuttle!  I love sharing my interest in all things space with students!
There will be no homework, however students will leave with a collection of links to additional resources and videos.  They will also be able to see the ISS fly over their house sometime in the next couple of weeks!
A second device helps (one to see the Zoom call and one to see our slides on peardeck), but is not at all required. We will make it work either way!
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
We will discuss how the astronauts use the bathroom, but it is just a picture of the space toilet and a description of how it works.  We will also discuss the system on board that recycles astronaut urine into drinkable water.
Google slides with peardeck.  It is better if the student has a second device to run peardeck on, but is not at all required.  They can watch the Zoom and work with peardeck on the same device if needed.
