Thirteen-year-old unschooler, Zoë Bentley, has won the $1,000 second place prize in the NASA No Boundaries National Competition, in competition with high school students. First place winners have received an invitation to tour NASA. However, according to Zoë’s mother, Lisa Cottrell-Bentley, author of the Wright on Time adventure series, “. . . since Zoe’s project was so impressive, they’ve invited her for a personal tour of the Jet Propulsion Lab in California.”

The NASA No Boundaries Project slogan, “Education is very much like space itself. Limitless. No boundaries.” is well-suited to the philosophy and practice of unschooling, and is well-illustrated by Zoë Bentley’s achievements and aspirations.

For more information about Zoë’s project, check out her website, Exogeology ROCKS!, with videos she has made about the “extremely fascinating field” of exogeology, including interviews with real exogeologists.

Aside from her NASA “No Boundaries” win, Zoë has also won a full scholarship to a week-long Astronomy Camp.

Bagaimana Cara Belajar Anak Homeschooling?

Jangan membayangkan homeschooling hanya dengan mengundang guru privat. Proses belajar dalam homeschooling bisa sangat beragam dan kaya, tergantung pada kreativitas orangtua.

Jika orangtua ingin meningkatkan kualitas homeschooling yang dijalaninya, orangtua perlu meningkatkan kapasitas diri agar anak-anak tidak hanya belajar untuk lulus ujian, tidak hanya belajar berbasis mata pelajaran, tidak hanya belajar dengan mendengarkan ceramah dan latihan soal.

Serial webinar ini akan membahaskan tentang strategi pembelajaran berbasis dunia nyata dan keseharian. Strategi pembelajaran ini bukan hanya penting untuk meningkatkan kualitas pendidikan anak-anak, tetapi juga meningkatkan kepercayaan diri orangtua dan kapasitas keterampilan orangtua sebagai fasilitator dalam proses belajar anak.

Materi yang dibahaskan dalam webinar ini untuk anak beragam usia dari anak usia pra-sekolah hingga SMA.
