|How We Determine Our Grades|
After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.
Roughly two years after an entire Apollo crew died in a fire on the launch pad, Neil Armstrong walked on the moon. How have our attitudes toward exploration and risk changed since the era of the Apollo moon missions? Do you think it is a good thing that we are more conservative with our acceptance of risk? Is it possible to be too careful?
Today, we are still enjoying some of the benefits of the Apollo program, which range from enriched baby food to solar energy and modern computers. A page that details many of these positive spin-offs can be found here: www.thespaceplace.com/nasa/spinoffs.html
