Astronomy Curriculum for High School

  • Duration: Self-Paced (complete within 2 years of purchase date)
  • Age Group: 12-14 years +

Student-Centered Learning  

In the self-paced Introduction to Astronomy curriculum, we believe that students learn best when their curiosity is encouraged and they have an opportunity for independent, in-depth exploration. To encourage this, students will create projects, reports, and their own star-gazing journals as part of the class.

These projects will be relevant to the course as well as have an element of student choice, allowing students to deep-dive into subjects that pique their interest or explore other aspects of Astronomy. It’s an opportunity for them to take charge of their learning and showcase their knowledge and creativity.

This course offers an engaging and interactive learning experience, where students not only gain a deeper understanding of Astronomy but also develop essential skills in research, analysis, and contextualizing scientific ideas.

Capture the Wonder of the Stars with Self-Paced Astronomy Curriculum for High School

Introduction to Astronomy is a year-long class that will introduce your child to the wonders of Astronomy. This subject looks at the history of our understanding of the cosmos and our place in it. We will look at the physics of telescopes, Kepler’s Laws, and Newton’s Laws of Motion and Gravitation. Then we will begin to explore the Solar System.

Once we have explored our neighbours we will look further afield to the world beyond the Solar System. We will look at stars in greater detail and their classification, and the process at the heart of them. The course will look at galaxies and more exotic objects like quasars and black holes.

In addition to a weekly video, worksheets, and other activities, there will also be projects throughout the year. Students are encouraged to begin a stargazing journal to record their own observations.

At the end of the course, we will also consider questions around origins, which lead naturally to apologetics.

Included in the price is the Introduction to Astronomy Worksheets and Answer Key.

This course is perfect for a child looking to gain a High School Science credit without a lot of maths (we will be looking mostly at concepts and ideas without a lot of mathematics). Or a child interested in GCSE astronomy as something to launch into. Or simply for a child who loves space and wants to look more into the science of space.
