July 17: Wrapping Up the Course

Yesterday was the 40th anniversay of the Apollo 11 liftoff. Monday (July 20) will be the 40th anniversary of Armstrong’s first step onto the lunar surface.

In the last class meetings students worked on a web page where they described what they learned in the TAG class. They also did a little Internet research to discover important facts about Apollo 11 and the Moon. Additionally, the learned how to add pictures, videos (YouTube), and simple games to their websites.

I had originally planned to distribute the final version of the computer program on CD, but burning 80 copies of the master CD would take about 16 hours. Right now I plan to distribute the student’s code through email to the parents. A separate post will describe how to install and run the program.
