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.

This movie is based on the fact that we don’t treat our planet very well. Will the Earth be capable of sustaining life, as we know it, in the near future? Should we be concerned about the world we leave to future generations? Are there steps families can take to prevent ecological disasters?

Many sci-fi movies require us to overlook some highly improbable scenarios in order for the script to flow. Do you think that present day computer hardware could interface with that built 50 years hence without any compatibility issues? How many other times were you required to suspend disbelief?

Even in the year 2050, duct tape appears to be a necessary item when it comes to the handy man’s toolbox. Since cargo space would be a scarce commodity, what is the most important personal item you’d take along on a lengthy space mission?

And finally, how much do you think Toshiba paid for the exclusive advertising on the astronaut’s spacesuits?
