In this course, students will explore the wonders and challenges of living in space and sharpen their research and problem-solving skills. Gone are the days of the dreaded science fair project! In this course, critical thinking will be key, as students identify a specific problem faced by astronauts who embark on long-duration space travel and then work to create a unique solution to this problem. The course will culminate in an individual final project, which students will present to classmates.
This course will be a mixture of lively class discussions and group brainstorming sessions. Students will be encouraged to actively participate in live classes.
Students will discover new ideas about life in space, implement the Engineering Design Process, and use creativity and persistence to develop an innovative solution to a real-world problem. Students will learn how to identify credible sources of information while performing research on a chosen topic. Students will craft a written paragraph related to their research topic and learn how to create a works cited list.
Students should expect to spend 1 – 2 hours each week on reading assignments and project research. Students will be given periodic written assignments throughout the course, culminating in an individual final class project. Students will present this final project to classmates.
