Space Settlers – A Journey To Earth and Beyond

$199.00

Space Settlers is an exciting and inspirational 8-week community building journey
of STEM/ STEAM activities for the comprehensive development, planning and
implementation of all things required for space settlement, and the approaches of
sustainability here on Earth. Each 1.5-hour session explores hands on STEM/
STEAM application and goes in depth to illustrate the significance of each concept.
This course features experienced space industry leaders as guests who will share
their expertise in applying these concepts. The curriculum applies to each student
regardless of education level, and provides an all-inclusive environment for
students to explore and celebrate their diversity. In addition to featuring guest
speakers, this course also offers weekly informal online supplementary mentoring,
to provide additional instruction and insight. Students will develop their own design
for a working space colony using a medium of their choice. Part of this project
includes demonstrating the benefits that this design can also bring to Earth.
Ultimately the goal of this course is to demonstrate the interconnectivity of STEM/
STEAM systems and their daily impact on communities around the globe.
Space Settlers is taught by Rhonda Stevenson, a experienced space industry
executive, and space development advocate. Ms. Stevenson has over a decade of
experience teaching STEM/ STEAM concepts, and leadership to a junior audience.
Each class session explores the requirements for a healthy civilization, the resources
required, and how to acquire and apply them.
