Education Plan

 

All Educational programs

Promoting Space, Science and Technology Studies

Investigative Study with the Ministry of Education and Davidson Institute

curriculum for 200 middle schools that focuses on science studies. These curriculum are  designed for students to learn through hands-on experiments. Currently, there are six subjects  under development: measuring distances in space, gravity independent mass measuring, free fall activity, measuring the speed of light, measurement and data transfer, and optimization of water  rockets.

Teachers Training (with Partnership with Ministry of Education)

Trainings for physics  teachers in which we teach them about SpaceIL’s engineering challenges and give them  materials to explore and research these challenges with their students.

Ta’asiyeda

“The Sky is Not the Limit” Course

in partnership with Israeli NGO Ta’asiyeda, we have  developed a long-term course on space entrepreneurship for fifth to eighth graders in 137 schools  across Israel.  Using SpaceIL as a case study, we teach the kids about the space industry and  space exploration, inspiring them to think about future business possibilities and inventions in  space.  The leading teams from across Israel will be invited to a national conference hosted by  SpaceIL. Our partnership will roll into future school years, with more and more schools across  Israel taking part.

Israel Engagement Curriculum and Campaigns Abroad (with the iCenter)

In  partnership with this prominent, innovative US based educational nonprofit, we will be  running a series of Israel awareness educational campaigns across the US Jewish  community.  SpaceIL presents a wonderful opportunity to engage Jews around the  world with a new, innovative side of Israel. We plan to develop and distribute curriculum  to Jewish educators across the US and then expand to other global Jewish communities. The materials will be supported by an online website and campaigns to engage Jewish students to take part in SpaceIL’s effort.
