SYLLABUS

To Boldly Go Where No Student Has Gone Before

This imaginative S.T.E.M. course challenges students to investigate how mathematics can solve real–life problems by utilizing Project–Based Learning (PBL) to understand the Common Core standards as it is found in the world of space exploration. The Fall semester will introduce high schoolers to real spaceflight operations and will end with their own real space station designs. The Spring semester will find the pupils planning and financing an authentic mission to a Near Earth Object (NEO) using real rocketry designs derived from NASA and the private sector.

Student versatility will be further enhanced by the inclusion of other learning frameworks, such as creating art, writing technical papers, participating in discussion groups, and coding spreadsheet apps to automate the mathematical process.
