*** If you need the cliff notes version of this post, skip down to the Call to Action section! Last year I had a “hunch” about learning…specifically about curriculum. That hunch turned into a full fledged idea and a mission to do better for kids.
StarChild: Glossary Glossary ASTEROID A rocky space object that can be a few feet wide to several hundred miles wide. Most asteroids in our solar system orbit in a belt between Mars and Jupiter.

Startram could usher in era of low-cost space travel Next Big Future has covered the Startram concept in detail before. The GEN 1 concept involves using long, evacuated tunnels to accelerate unmanned payloads to orbital velocity. In theory, this concept could bring launch costs to LEO down to $50 dollar per kilogram. A more ambitious GEN 1.5 system could would take longer and greater resources to develop but could also put humans into orbit for a similar per-kilogram cost. In an interview with Sander Olson, Startram visionary James Powell discusses why he believes that the concept is viable, and how it could be developed within twenty years for $40 billion.
The F1 Team in Schools Challenge is a competition, open to all SA based secondary schools and colleges, to design and manufacture compact gas cylinder powered model racing cars. Student teams will compete against each other in a national championship to determine the best engineered and fastest car in SA. It's just like being in a real Formula One team. The competition is run by Sangari Institute - a not-for-profit organisation established with committed partners to provide an exciting yet challenging educational experience through the magnetic appeal of Formula One. F1 in Schools is rapidly realising its potential of becoming the only truly global educational program that raises awareness of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths) among students and school children in every region, in every country, on every continent.

Parenting as Path: one day workshop (for details click here) Tomorrow is the Spelling Bee (karate competition, gymnastics recital, or any other "performance").

Rousing Intuition No approach to teaching, however brilliant or effective, will ever be more important than the individual teacher's ability to hear and act upon his own intuition. It is intuition that must guide the teacher's moment-to-moment work so that it is a creative and genuine response to the needs of his students. Without intuition and the teacher's genuine connection to his work, any and all approaches become dogma. In this course, which is the cornerstone of the Enki approach, participants will be introduced to observation techniques and artistic and meditative disciplines that can be used to develop direct perception of the child. These disciplines take us from the realm of concepts and ideas into our own direct experience of the child's world - and our own. Opening course in an alternative teacher education program for an arts integrated education using sensory integration in a developmentally based curriculum for an experiential alternative to Waldorf for homeschool and classroom.
