In this clip from the Space Prize Speaker Series, Laura Anne Edwards from the Oxford Space Initiative explains that all sorts of roles are needed for the growing space economy...for jobs in space and here on Earth. She challenges young people by asking what role they want to play in this future.
At ARES Learning, we're preparing students not only to play a role in the space economy, but to create those roles. Our focus is on the skill sets and mindsets students need to be successful in a fast changing unpredictable future... including the explorer's mindset, moonshot thinking, design methods, synthesis, and reflection. Our experiential approach to learning is focused on entrepreneurship, helping students learn to launch and lead companies that solve meaningful problems.
Learn more about our 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 he developed for high schools - it's a free and open education resource available to students, teachers, and enthusiasts everywhere.
