Check the Certified Junior Astronauts of IVY International Schools after studying our STEM Space Courses
The Space Engineering Program at IVY International Schools is a spectacular mix of the “Certified Junior Astronaut” program from the K12 Space Science and Satellites Academy and practical hands-on activities from IVY Schools.
The “Certified junior Astronaut” course is a space engineering course designed to spark the student’s interest in Space and Satellite technology. It follows a simple Q and A model to provide answers to conceptual questions including the following examples:
- Is The Satellite Static or Does It Rotate in The Space?
- How Can a Satellite Fly or How Could It Rotate in Its Orbit Without Falling on The Ground?
- What Is the Importance of The Accurate Design of a Satellite Orbit?
- What Are the Components of Space System?
- What are the Components and Sub-systems of a Satellite?
- How Can Satellites Be Launched?
- When Does the Lifetime of a Satellite End?
- How to become a future astronaut?
And many other space-related questions.
The practical activities and hands-on component of the program provided by IVY Schools include 4 activities as follows:
- Exploring Satellite Main Components: using virtual reality environment, TDRS NASA online simulator, and design a satellite model 3D Printer.
- Gravity and Satellite in Orbit Simulation: using PHET online simulator.
- Satellite Builder from A to Z: Using online satellite builder to go through a complete process of designing a satellite for a certain mission.
- Scientific Investigations Using Cube Satellite (Space Keys Educational Satellite Platform): It consists of the same onboard satellite subsystems, ground receiving and control station, solar panels, and other components, in addition to space simulators.
