Current Events in Space Technology & Rocket Launches

  • Ages:
    Gradeschooler, Teen

Here are the links for this class:





During this class, we will be talking about the latest happenings in space technology and rocket launches!

The class will be a combination of slides, videos, and discussions, and learners can jump in and share their thoughts or ask questions at any point. They can also bring up topics they’ve seen or read about.

The discussions will be a combination of current events as they are happening, along with space and technology questions that your learner brings to the table. There is not a pre-determined schedule, as there are new advances in space technology and new rocket launches all the time.

For example:
– SpaceX Starship Rocket
– International Space Station
– SpaceX Falcon 9 Rocket
– United Launch Alliance (Rocket Company)
– Blue Origin (Rocket Company)
– Starlink Satellites (New space-based internet technology)
– Discussion of the progression of rocket types over the years. (NASA Space Shuttle program, etc.)
– SpaceX Starship History

Note: For some of these classes I have my Women in Space classes and Kerbal Space Program classes either right before or right after with 10-20 minute breaks in between so that learners can join with like-minded friends and fill their morning or afternoon with SPACE!

Here are some links to my other classes:
