Conventional educational attainment expectations for school students are generally defined by curriculum documents in each jurisdiction. However, new technologies disrupt societies, so it is pertinent to ask how computers have changed educational expectations. Robert Heinlein put this into perspective in a short story (1957). The protagonist is Holly Jones. She is 15 and a spaceship designer: “I’m very bright in mathematics, which is everything in space engineering, so I’ll get my degree pretty fast. Meanwhile we design ships anyhow. I didn’t tell Miss Brentwood this, as tourists think a girl my age can’t possibly be a spaceship designer.” This demonstrates some early aspirations of how education might change in future where lunar habitats become well established.
