Our Location in the Universe is a collaboration project of Art-Pod, Astronomy Studies Group, Burckhalter School, and Project Directors John Panagos/ASG/NASA/JPL Solar System Ambassadors Program and JoAnn Gillerman/Art-Pod to create an extracurricular program that provides a hybrid in-person and unique web based, distance learning, astronomy, art, and virtual reality curriculum for K-5 students.
Video, Photographs and Pictures created by:
JoAnn Gillerman, John Panagos and the K-5 Astronomy Studies Group (as credited and listed)
Using real and virtual space, fun exercises that combine art, science, culture, technology, astronomy related information, Virtual Reality, and virtual global astronomy sites, Our Location in the Universe curriculum supports the idea of micro to macro, geo-location mapping, and astronomy related curriculum to creatively engage multi-generational and diverse participants in STEAM education, art, science and culture.
At the completion of this workshop, each Student is given a VR Headset so they can see their art works in a short cinematic 360/VR Virtual Reality Video created by JoAnn Gillerman/Art-Pod accessible through this website to the K-5 Astronomy Studies Group students and the public.
