FROM THE TEACHER

Do you have a curiosity about the universe, the planets, stars, and constellations? What do you believe about the age of the Earth, and how does that align with the Bible? Since creation, humans have been fascinated with the stars, planets, and the universe that surrounds us.

This course introduces students to the study of astronomy, including its history and development, basic scientific laws of motion and gravity, the concepts of modern astronomy, and the methods used by astronomers. While the content presents various viewpoints about the creation of the Universe, the course will lead students to a Biblical Worldview understanding. Using online tools, students will examine the life of stars, the properties of planets, and the exploration of space.

Upon completion of this class, students will have a greater appreciation for the amazing universe God has created, and it will strengthen their faith in the Creator.

Student Feedback

The organization was well thought out. Very predictable but perfect for an online course.

"The assessments for me were fine. I think that a number of assessments that this course gives is fine because they don't over exaggerate over the amount of the work, and they don't give us too much little work."
