Title:FS: Using the New Space Race to Inspire Students in the Classroom (F302)
Description:Rocketry incorporates a wide spectrum of studies. It requires an unyielding persistence to problem solve in the midst of unrelenting failure, and is arguably the tip of the spear when it comes to innovation. The progress currently being made by private space companies like SpaceX, has kicked off a new space race to the Moon, Mars and beyond. So how can this new age of space exploration benefit the younger generation? When students are inspired by what they are learning, they become less disruptive and more motivated for the future. The teachers of our time have an opportunity to reach their students in ways rarely seen since the days of Apollo. This session will explore the modern breakthroughs in space exploration technology, and how teachers can share these achievements in the classroom to inspire their students.
