About the MOOC

In this MOOC, teachers will be guided to create their own Learning Scenario with tested materials from the Aerospace in class project. They will hear best practices from the project’s Lead Teachers and learn about all the knowledge and skills needed to engage students with aerospace subjects. The course will give the opportunity to study practical solutions from aerospace education and will present inspirational examples of activities in the fields of “Science of Flight”, “Mission to the Moon” and the “Future of the Skies”. The course will consist of four modules, each of them tackling different aspects of designing modern classroom lessons for students on aerospace topics, which are great to be implemented in a STEM class.
