Creating a new world in space


Learners will find themselves in the year 2100, when space travel is more common and multiple colonies have established themselves on far away planets. In this 15 hour module, learners will work as part of a learning team to persuade new people to join their colony. Bringing together creative writing, application of maths, digital literacy and code, there is ample opportunity for learners to develop out of the box thinking and practice their written and verbal communication. How will they lead others to accept the changes that come with space exploration? Only time will tell!
