Here, you’ll find learning activities and design prompts that explore three research efforts currently underway at the SEI: The first focuses on cube satellites 🛰(or CubeSats), small vessels used to help us better understand our own planet as well as outer-space! You’ll also have a chance to learn about the future of life in space and on other planets, and specifically the future of meals and dining in those new frontiers. 👩🍳 Finally, you’ll learn about what life could be like on the moon, and how we could eventually live sustainably on the lunar surface. 👽👾
If you’re new to all things space exploration, we’ve also created a blueprint for getting acquainted with other projects and research in the field of space exploration, that also includes some key terms for this learning series. This is a great place to get you kicked off for this care package!
About Full STEAM Ahead:
Full STEAM Ahead is a website MIT has assembled to share science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM) based instructional materials for a global community of learners. The site is meant as a rapid response to the need for online resources during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are curating existing resources for K-12, higher education, and lifelong learners. Additionally, the website will provide a weekly package of relevant materials for K-12 students and teachers.
Our mission is to create and share high quality resources to facilitate digital and non-digital learning for K-12 and lifelong learners. By providing science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM) based instructional materials and an open forum for users to share insights, we aim to inspire a diverse global community of educators, students, and parents to find innovative solutions to the challenges of learning at a distance. #OneMIT #MITFullSTEAM
