Day 7 – EVIDENCE OF LEARNING DAY

Congratulations, SpaceQuest Cadets! You’ve made it to the final day of the challenge. You’ll notice that the challenge image for today is the SpaceX launch. That’s because today’s challenge is where you take flight on your own journey of space discovery. You’re the explorer of your own uncharted science journey. Never stop asking questions and exploring to discover new things.

Think back through each of the previous 6 challenges and compile what you’ve learned so far. Highlight your favorite experiments. Tell us about your experiences. This is the accountability challenge. It brings together the previous 6 days of learning. Make a photo collage, written essay, or video compilation (2 minutes or less) of your daily reflections. We are excited to hear what you learned about yourself, the space, science, and critical thinking.

Take your time on this experiment. It isn’t due until Friday, August 21st, 10 AM PACIFIC. This is your written or visual thesis and every submission will be reviewed by the Real Science-4-Kids crew.  Dr. Keller is waiting to personally review your learning statements. Then, join her LIVE on Facebook this Saturday at 10 AM PACIFIC. We’ll remind you of the LIVE event time in the Facebook group and via email.

Good luck, Questers. Let the challenge begin!

 

Remember to post your FINAL findings for the challenge image to the Facebook group’s discussion feed by Friday, August 21st, at 10 AM Pacific. That is how we track your entry so that you are eligible for prizes at the end of the challenge.

 

DATES OF MENTION:

  • FINAL submission deadline for all projects: FRIDAY, AUGUST 21ST, 10 AM PACIFIC!

  • End-of-challenge Zoom Party: SATURDAY, AUGUST 22ND, 10 AM PACIFIC!

—————————————————————

The instructions for this challenge remain consistent throughout the 7 days. Use this image to create your questions and focus your research. Complete details are given in the downloadable challenge document above. We will also be posting the challenge in the blog section of our website.

Remember: No question is wrong. No question too far fetched. Map out your questions and narrow your focus to just one area of SpaceQuest study. Then, get ready to dive deep, learn big, and create something AMAZING!

SpaceQuest Day 6 Challenge

 

Beyond Your Imagination – SPACEQUEST!

 

 

 

Day 6 Focus Image

 

Some things in space we can only imagine and think about for now. Scientists haven’t been able to get good images of them, but they have still learned a lot about them. Science is advancing just enough to get the first images of black holes. Before now, we relied on artist renderings to see what they might look like. Compare and contrast the artist renderings and the actual image in the reference material below. Think about the image and let your imagination and critical thinking be the keys to educational flight. We can’t wait to see what your curiosity and ingenuity will produce.

In space, precision is key. In SpaceQuest, perfection is a hindrance. Don’t be scared off by the idea that you aren’t doing it right. This challenge is about thinking creatively, not finding a right answer. We will be here to cheer you on and lead the way.

If you need some inspiration feel free to peruse the posts from the daily challenges in the Facebook group or check out these ideas from NASA:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/rs4k.sciencechallenges/learning_content/

https://www.jpl.nasa.gov/edu/learn/

In this science challenge you will receive one daily challenge image for seven days. That’s it! Based on that image alone, space cadets will be challenged to think up their own questions and produce evidence of learning in a manner of your choosing. This is where imagination is key.

Remember to post your findings for the challenge image to the Facebook group’s discussion feed by Wednesday, August 19th, at 10 AM Pacific. That is how we track your entry so that you are eligible for prizes at the end of the challenge.

“Over the Moon” Excited About SPACEQUEST!

 

 

 

Day 2 Focus Image

 

We’ve taken flight and cleared the atmosphere. Are you floating as high as we are yet? There is so much excitement all around.

CoronaQuest Day 16

CoronaQuest Day 16 Challenge is Here!

 

Congratulations, Questers! You’ve made it to the final day of the challenge. You’ll notice that the challenge image for today is a blank sheet of paper. That’s because today’s challenge is open for you to write. You’re the author of the adventure. This is the day you start your journey as an independent Quester. Never stop asking questions and exploring.

Think back through each of the 15 challenges and compile what you’ve learned so far. Highlight your favorite experiments. Tell us about your experiences. This is the accountability challenge. It brings together the previous 15 days of learning. Make a photo collage, written essay, or video compilation (2 minutes or less) of your daily reflections. We are excited to hear what you learned about yourself, the coronavirus, science, and critical thinking.

Take your time on this experiment. It isn’t due until Sunday, April 12th, 6 pm PST. This is your written or visual thesis and every submission will be reviewed by the Real Science-4-Kids crew.  Dr. Keller is waiting to personally review your learning statements. Then, join her LIVE on Facebook this Tuesday. We’ll post the LIVE event time for you in the Facebook group and remind you via email.

Good luck, Questers. Let the challenge begin!

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Remember to use your imagination and ask a lot of questions. You never know where your questions and experiments will lead. It’s totally up to you. Think big! Watch out for the pitfalls of “perfection” along the way. This challenge is about thinking creatively, not finding a right answer. We are here to cheer you on and lead the way.

The instructions for this challenge remain consistent throughout the 16 days, so Questers know what to expect and can be self-directed while learning to think big. No question is wrong. No question too farfetched. Map out your questions and narrow your focus to just one area of CoronaQuest study. Then, get ready to dive deep, learn big, and create something AMAZING!
