Currently we are witnessing a major shift where companies such as SpaceX, Blue Origin, Google Lunar XPrize and others are taking steps into the space industry that for many decades was the territory of governments. There is no question this growth will bring new opportunities and careers paths for our current students. As a district careers coordinator I feel that the education system needs to prepare students for the opportunities that will come in their future, whether it be in the space industry or any technology-related field.
This was my motivation to develop SPACE SCHOOL which is an online resource for students and teachers to help inspire space-related education. In developing Space School I wanted to use the excitement that exists with the space industry and connect it to so many key skills and education that is taking place in schools. STEM, robotics, science, coding, problem solving, physics, math – these are skills that will benefit students not only in the space industry but in almost ANY industry that they choose to work on in the future.
