Welcome to this teacher training course on Education for the 21st Century
* This unit is open to anyone across the globe.
A 10-week course designed to take you on a journey through our solar system and into the far reaches of space!
This course is designed to provide students with an in-depth understanding of the vast and complex universe we live in. Starting with an introduction to space and our solar system, students will learn about the different planets, their unique features, and their position in the solar system. The course then moves on to explore the structure of the Earth, the Moon, and the other planets of the solar system, both inner and outer. Students will also learn about asteroids, comets, and meteors, and the different ways humans explore space, including space probes.
The course concludes with a discussion of the sun, stars, galaxies, and the future of space exploration, including the possibility of colonizing other planets. By the end of the course, students will have gained a comprehensive understanding of the universe and its workings.
The course will be delivered from Antarctica alongside the amazing Dr Karl and Jordan C. Brun. Each week we will align the content with stores from the Antarctic region to bring the world of space one step closer to the children in your class.
“It has been a privilege for our children to be a part of the initial Upschool program focussing on creating a Changemaking Community. Our students have been engaged from the outset, and we have seen a measurable improvement in not only their literacy skills but also in their empathy towards others and their understanding of how to connect to communities both locally and abroad. The resources that are provided are outstanding and have kept our students motivated towards their goals.
It has transformed the way that we approach teaching within the school, giving our students an authentic purpose and opportunity to make a real world difference.
As a school we are committed to the work that Upschool is doing and are looking forward to our next work with them.”
