"Who else is feeling supersonic? Everyone who loves adventure and is fascinated by space has a smile on their face today..."


states Richard Branson on his blog.

"Nothing provokes wonder like space travel. We get so many wonderful questions about how we are moving towards commercial space travel and how people can get involved, especially from students and teachers."

Space travel is an exciting way to teach our children about STEM and Richard Branson posted today a series of lesson plans which bring STEM to life.  From folding a paper airplane, to constructing a test flight, to analyzing engineering jobs there is something for all ages.

The Galactic Unite's Lesson Plans include four plans that are free to download.

Here is an excerpt from Lesson Plan 4:

Through this lesson plan you will explore the many jobs and fields in the aerospace industry and on the video, you'll hear from the SpaceShipTwo's designers and engineers themselves. Think about which aerospace careers would be of most interest to you. In space exploration, for almost every kind of job you can think of, someone is at work on space-related fields.

What a dream it would be for any student or future engineer to work on such an endeavor.
