Design your habitat – Where will you be in the future?
How amazing was today! #LaunchAmerica
My first job was at NASA when I graduated from high school in 1966. That led to an aspiration to apply for the teacher in space program. And continues today as I try to motivate young leaders as a Houston Aspirations.org award coordinator.
Today was also the NCWIT 2020 National Award Ceremony. The keynote conversation with Ruthe Farmer and Limor Fried was powerful, like the Falcon that launched a new future. Limor Fried asked, How will you use the power you have? And this boost was continued with the voices of 4 inspirational aspirations.org winners!
My boost was fueled when I was honored as a White House Champion of Change for Computer Science Education. Ruthe was also a Champion of Change and the power behind recruiting me to start the Aspirations program in Houston a decade ago. Please use your powers to design a space for you and my grandchildren. Oh, the places we will go! … Launch2020
My questions perked by #LaunchAmerica:
- How many people on ISS?
- How long has the station been in space?
- Did they compose the music playing on the approach for this event?
- What do they do on the ISS? The ISS serves as a microgravity and space environment research laboratory in which crew members conduct experiments in biology, human biology, physics, astronomy, meteorology, and other fields. The station is suited for the testing of spacecraft systems and equipment required for missions to the Moon and Mars.

Knowledge is answers to questions.
Accountability for schools should be based on the questions students ask.
Not worksheet questions created by others.
We need an Integrated Communication Loop in Education too. … Can we get almost all the way up? And create capsule art.
Let this be the start of a new Journey in the Classroom that will change education for All!
Thanks for your patience as I push to debug a system that must change the tangled mess I see. The current education system is not working. Time to get Elon Musk type thinkers to make it happen. Where is the control center standing by? Where is Cyber Security?
So, what is missing in the education system? A lack of quality control and feedback. The busy bee is the quality control agent. We can learn from nature. We can learn from Space. We can learn from the voices not heard!
