Dr. Chris Boshuizen joined us for the opening astronaut panel at the most recent Space Education Symposium. Here he explains his perspective viewing the Earth - and the blackness beyond. He describes feeling a call to just keep going, and intends to do just that. What are today's schools doing to serve students who hear this call - or those who might hear it if given the chance?
At ARES Learning, we prepare students with the skill sets and mindsets they'll need to be successful in the growing space economy, and in humanity's rapidly approaching multiplanet future. Whether or not they work in space or solve other difficult problems here on Earth, students in a fast-moving unpredictable world will be well served by what they learn, including the Explorer's Mindset, Moonshot Thinking, Design Methods, multidiciplinary synthesis, and relentless self reflection.
Learn more about the ARES Learning approach in the book Space Education: Preparing Students for Humanity's Multi-Planet Future by our co-founder Dr. Mark Wagner, and explore a complete Space Education Curriculum developed for high schools - it's a free and open education resource available to students, teachers, and enthusiasts everywhere.
