Class Experience

Students will learn what gravity does to objects; what has to happen for an object (including a planet, moon, spacecraft, or your lunch) to orbit around another object; what a satellite is; and why people and other objects in space sometimes stay above the floor and at other times stay on the ground.
For decades, I have enthusiastically taught elementary school-aged children about space, whether as a science teacher at school or in summer programs. Collaboration with NASA and university scientists has helped refine my expertise.

I inspire students with a combination of storytelling, inquiry, discovery, discussion, and an age-appropriate, memorable sense of humor. Establishing a low-risk atmosphere and a comfortable rapport, I enjoy connecting with each individual learner, valuing the unique interests, strengths, and eager curiosity the students bring to class.
Having two small, soft objects ready (like foam balls, puff balls, or tiny plush animals/characters) will enable participation in at least one hands-on activity. Try to find two objects that have about the same amount of mass or weight. Also, please have a clipboard with a few sheets of paper (preferably blank paper, but it can be lined if no blank paper is available) and a pencil and eraser (colored pencils are optional).
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
