MISSION TO MARS in VR
MISSION TO MARS in VR
Univirtual Academy

Mars has captured human imagination for centuries and has served as a setting for many science fiction novels. Scientists have looked to Mars as an unique resource, holding clues to the origin of the solar system as well as the potential for future colonization. Numerous autonomous satellites and rovers have been sent to the red planet. With each successful mission we learn more about our most accessible celestial neighbor. Whether you dream of one day traveling to Mars or just want to learn more about our celestial neighbor, this course is for you. Did you know Mars is home to the largest volcano in the solar system? Or that it has a gigantic canyon 10 times wider and deeper than Earth’s Grand Canyon? We will deep dive into Mars’ surface geography and unique tectonics, look at its ice caps, and talk about whether water was present on Mars before. We will learn about current explorations of Mars and how we may prepare for human travel there.

GENETICS CLASS IN VR

Univirtual Academy

All abroad for a fun virtual reality adventure! You're invited to explore VR's fascinating game-based quest and learn genetics! Created by Stanford PhD, Marcos Rojas, this genetics class is a great opportunity to explore the structure and function of DNA, the basic principles of heredity, and genetic mutations. Students will explore how living things use genetic information to transmit traits from generation to generation, how mutations can change genes and produce new traits, and how genotypic and phenotypic traits are passed down. Other topics include the history of genetics, the implications of genetic engineering and biotechnology, and the power of using genetics to answer questions about ancestry and health. Virtual hands-on activities will also be incorporated into the lesson plan, such as constructing models of DNA molecules or designing a mock family tree to illustrate the basics of heredity. Through this kind of engaging teaching, students will gain a better understanding of the science behind genetics and its implications in their lives.

This fun and challenging creative writing course invites young space pioneers / authors to assemble an international team of astronauts and write the story of the first human landing on Mars or Titan. Steady technological progress by NASA, SpaceX and others is giving the international space community growing confidence about a human landing on Mars in the not so distant future. Titan is an attractive objective after Mars. Using a 10 chapter guide, students use their technical, artistic and imaginative skills to create the story of the first crewed mission to Mars or Titan, and in the process become authors of an exciting new new e-book! Enrollment is limited to one or two authors per session. The book is developed over eight weekly classes with some work being done by the authors on their own. Authors provide illustrations and graphics to accompany the chapters as well as designing the book cover. Being a published author is an important confidence builder and can be an important detail to include in a resume. Some families have the books printed to use as special family gifts or to display on the coffee table. Class schedules are set up at the convenience of parents.

PHYSICS & SPACE EXPLORATION IN VR
PHYSICS & SPACE EXPLORATION IN VR
Univirtual Academy

In this course, students will learn some basic laws of physics, for example, Newton's laws of motion, and will learn to apply them in real-life and imaginary situation in space exploration. Newton's laws of motion are the foundation of classical mechanics, one of the main branches of physics. Mechanics is the study of how objects move or do not move when forces act upon them. You will apply what you learn in physics to space exploration challenges and will try to solve problems that NASA scientists had to tackle. Let your imagination & creativity soar and transform yourself into a real space exploration entrepreneur and inventor as you work on your interactive 3D presentations with your team.

Back to school preparation checklist

Make sure your child is ready to head back to school this year with a simple back to school preparation checklist.

  1. Get registered! Be sure that your child is registered for their school, particularly if they’re attending a new school.
  2. Mark off important dates on your children’s school calendar, such as the first day of school.
  3. Get and complete the required medical forms. Set up an appointment with your family physician to make sure your child is up to date on all required immunizations.
  4. Finish all the homework! Be sure your child has completed all their summer assignments.
  5. Do your back to school shopping using your school’s supply list and dress code.
  6. Give your child’s mental muscles a refresher with games and classes to get your student back in schoolwork mode.
  7. Figure out where the bus stops are before and after school, or set up other transportation.
Getting ready to go back to school after Covid

Creating a new routine this year is helpful to keep everything on track. "Kids do best when they know what to expect, so establishing normalcy and a routine are very important," says Yamalis Diaz, PhD, child and adolescent psychologist at NYU Langone's Child Study Center. She recommends creating a calendar that outlines which days are online versus in-person learning, and then breaks down what will happen during each of those days.

On the first day of school try to mark the transition in a special way, Catherine Halberg, a school psychologist at an elementary school in Shelburne Falls, Mass said. Consider getting a new outfit or backpack, for example, or cooking a favorite breakfast.

“Or you can create a new routine by giving your child a memento to take to school each day. You can take a picture of yourself, for example, and put it inside a locket or glue it on a piece of paper that gets tucked inside their lunchbox,” Ann Densmore, an educational psychologist who has consulted at private and public schools for more than 25 years said.

The CDC provides an in-person school checklist for getting ready to go back to school after Covid.

Back to school tips 2024 to get back to school ready
Address any learning loss

Because the 2020 school year did not go as planned, there will likely be gaps in students’ knowledge. It’s important to address the learning loss by identifying areas, and creating a plan for moving each student to the grade-level requirement. Back to school classes can help!

Prepare for healthy hygiene

Stock up on face coverings, hand sanitizers, and disinfecting wipes. In any in-door public setting, the CDC advises people to wear cloth face coverings that cover both their mouth and nose. Face shields can help make it easier to see, so they might be an option to consider for younger students.

Recognize your child's feelings

Young children may not have the vocabulary to express how they feel heading back to school this year. Look for behaviors that indicate they are feeling anxious, such as crying, irritability, stomachaches, or clinginess. It is important for parents to acknowledge and validate these feelings says Dr. Mary Alvord, a psychologist in Maryland who specializes in treating children and adolescents with anxiety disorders and behavioral regulation problems. She suggested using this script: "I know it’s been hard, I know you like it at home. I know there’s a lot of things you don’t know and it may be scary."
