Engage students by connecting with their excitement about space! And.. reinvigorate your own love of teaching with a focus on a hopeful future.

 

The Space Education Summit features an opening panel with astronauts, four concurrent breakout sessions exploring multiple topics, and a closing capstone session. Learn why developments in space are important to people on Earth, what's happening today in the commercial space economy, and how students can best prepare for humanity's multiplanet future.

 

Sessions include not just space science and the history of space exploration, but also an introduction to the skill sets and mindsets students will need to be successful in a fast moving unpredictable future... including the Explorer's Mindset, Moonshot Thinking, and Design Methods. The event also introduces elements of space philosophy that are important to everyone, including matters of ethics, governance, and sustainability.

 

You don’t have to be a science teacher… space education helps students meet the standards whatever your grade level or subject area. Your students don’t have to be STEM enthusiasts either… space is for everyone, even artists and athletes. The space economy is booming and you can help your students prepare to be part of humanity’s future in space, whatever their passions and strengths.

 

You may not be confident about talking to your students about space... but this event is designed to raise your awareness of what’s possible, and to empower you with the resources and proven methods you need to inspire students.

Early bird tickets will run out soon, so take a few minutes to register now.
Then share the event with your friends and colleagues!
