The parent community is an important ally of the school in the education and training of students. Established cooperation of parents, teachers and students helps to create a classroom environment that provides opportunities to meet the needs of a child in cognition, communication and provides free expression in a variety of activities.
Therefore, as part of our project Space Is Our Future, training for parents was conducted. We have reviewed resources that can be considered for the study, research and deepening of knowledge about space. The resources which will give parents and students more inspiration on how to connect science, technology, engineering and math. It will help to find common topics for communication between parents and children, will make their joint leisure rich and complete.
Namely, we considered the following resources https://www.airbus.com/company/sustainability/airbus-foundation/discovery-space.html and the possibility of their use for parents https://www.airbus.com/company/sustainability/airbus-foundation/discovery-space/parents.html
“Discovery Space is a fun place for your children to explore accessible, ready-to-use materials, designed by experts and presented in a safe and trusted virtual environment. Explore our videos, aviation crafts, space art ideas, games, design challenges and quizzes, and discover science together.
Let’s explore aviation together: support your children’s science education with these accessible videos that explore how different objects fly, how aircraft have evolved and are designed today, and what you can expect on a flight – including how planes take off, land and navigate.
Let’s build our own space mission: how will we get to the moon, set up a community, survive the harsh conditions and travel across its surface? Show your children these easy-to-understand videos and then help them take part in space activities, crafts and design challenges.
Let’s reinvent the future with science: current trends like urbanisation, digitalisation, automation and sustainability are shaping the world of today and tomorrow. Help your children understand the impact emerging technologies will have on the way we fly, manufacture and live with this selection of informative videos.”
