STEAM with Astronomy

STEAM with Astronomy

STEAM with Astronomy Course is important for understanding the foundations of scientific discovery, has practical application in timekeeping and navigation. Teaching astronomy contributes to an understanding of physics and the origin of the world around us, a shared cultural background, and a sense of wonder and exploration. STEAM with Astronomy course addresses ages from the end of Primary Education to Secondary Education. In this class, we will be studying, quite literally, everything in the universe.  We will start with history of astronomy and review “classical” astronomy, describing the night sky and organizing what we see as was done in ancient times.  We will then embark on a journey, starting here on Earth and progressing outward, to study the Solar system, the Milky Way galaxy, and the wonderful and strange objects we observe in deep space, such as black holes, quasars, and supernovae.  We will end with some discussion of what scientists know today about the universe.  Along the way we will introduce some of the methods, theoretical and experimental, that have been used to understand all of this, from Newton’s laws, through our understanding of light and matter, to Einstein’s theory of relativity, and from Galileo’s telescope to latest astronomy news.
