Why do we see what we see in the heavens? Experience Astronomy Level B (for 11-14 year olds) and Experience Astronomy PLUS (Level C for 14-18 year olds) takes students on an adventure of discovering the Lord’s sky.

This course is an introduction to “classical” astronomy—learning about how the sun, moon, stars, and planets move. Students learn to read the sky like a map: by the end of their studies, they are able to identify, on sight, dozens of constellations, as well as the brightest stars and planets—knowing their names and many of the mythologies behind them.

Experience Astronomy+ (Level C) builds on our Level B program and takes students to the next level. Through twelve additional lectures and 12 hands-on projects & research papers, students learn about the fascinating connections between human cultures and astronomy all over the world.

The preview below includes the full content of Lessons 1 and Lesson 32— so you can get a feel for how your student will experience this course.

Lesson 1: What is Astronomy?

Why do Christian’s study astronomy? Because God has invited us to do it! Studying astronomy is an amazing way to learn more about God and His creation. This course will help you gain a greater understanding of and appreciation for what God has placed in the sky!

Lesson 32: Solar Eclipses

If you’ve ever been present for one, it’s not an event you’re likely to forget. You need to be in a precise location to spot one—in fact, people will travel all over the world to see them—but solar eclipses are among the most powerful astronomical events.

Comprehension Quizzes

Each week students have a comprehension quiz that’s auto-magically graded. They can use the results from this quiz to help them go back and study areas they’re weak in.

Lesson 32: Observation Assignment

The sky is your student’s lab! Each week students get outside to look at the sky with the help of the field guide. Most weeks there is also a stargaze video tutorials to help guide your student as they learn to read the sky like a map throughout the course.
