Handling Adversity with Grace
When asked what it's like to be an entrepreneur in the space industry, this was Vanessa Clark's answer. She's Co-Founder and CEO of Atomos Space, which is focused on bringing Orbital Transfer Vehicles to market, so she knows the challenges well. Developing this sort of flexibility and resilience is important to students whether they'll work in the growing space economy, be an entrepreneur in any industry, or make an impact in whatever career path they choose.
At ARES Learning we focus on helping students develop the skill sets and mindsets they'll need to be successful in a fast moving unpredictable future... where they will often be faced with frustrating challenges. Students who experience authentic obstacles in the Moonshot Laboratory have many opportunities to practice overcoming adversity with grace. It's truly "wonderful chaos."
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.
Educators, sign up for online professional development based on the book and curriculum. And be sure to register for the FREE online Space Education Summit on April 21, 2023.
