This course explores the nature and processes of the universe. Students use the science and engineering practices of the NGSS to understand the solar system, stars, black holes, galaxies, and the timeline of the universe. Observational equipment, techniques, and history are also presented as well as the nature of electromagnetic spectra, calculations of astronomical distances, and space exploration history.
