V. INTRODUCTION:


The operation of satellites and having an understanding how they work is an essential related industry to computer tech. This weeks lesson includes a lesson as to the basis of satellites, the kinds of satellites, the orbits, launching , and the operations of satellites.



VI. CONTENT:


This lesson will begin with an extensive lecture about satellite theory, orbits, kinds, launching, orbits, etc. There will be power point presentations, readings, web searches and other presentation methods for satellite information. The game on line will be used to demonstrate how to get a satellite into orbit. Game location listed in the addendum to this lesson plan.

A section of this lecture will be about the local industry of installation and setup of home satellite systems. We will hands on demonstrate the installation of the antennas, acquisition of satellite signal, cabling, and other aspects (money) of this trade. A guest speaker will present a demonstration of how to install and how to make money.



VII. SUMMARY:


Satellites are an emerging workplace for computer tech folks. This is probably the greatest area of growth for this industry for the foreseeable future.
