This class is an overview of all of astronomy. Our goal is to study not just what we know about the Universe but also how we know it. How do astronomers use observations and hypotheses to make inferences about things which are vastly remote and outside of our own experience? The goal is to learn what scientists have found about the processes that control the formation of planets, the birth and death of stars, the formation of galaxies, and the origin and ultimate fate of the Universe. The hope is that it will provide a new perspective on the Earth and our civilization that will change the way we think about our place in the Universe.In this class, students will explore NASA data to construct first-hand knowledge about astronomical universe. During the first and the second quarter of the class, students will be introduced to the dynamics of astronomy, and the structure of the universe. Then, Students will uses NASA data to perform astronomical research witch will include but not limited to Lunar Research, Kepler data, and Hubble telescope data to learn more about the star evolution and red shift. The class will conclude by the end of fourth quarter where students will present their individual astronomy research project and share their findings with the school community (students, teachers, family, and invited guests and grade schools)
