From our own biology to the smartphones in our pockets, science plays a role in every aspect of our lives. For example, the nuclear reactions from the sun provide us with the light and heat we need to survive. Welcome to EDUO 9514 – Solar System. The purpose of this course is to create a thorough, well thought out unit on the solar system. To that end, participants will not only be provided with resources on the solar system, but will also explore the next generation science standards as well as the importance of STEAM in education. By meeting the requirements of this class, participating teachers will earn one semester unit of graduate level extension credit from Dominican University of California, a fully accredited university.
After completing this course, you will demonstrate or indicate:
This course aligns with all of the next generation science standards associated with the solar system. These standards can be found at www.nextgenscience.org
