Each week we cover an assortment of space exploration topics that match interests and connect to what is happening in Canada and beyond. We cover different topics over multiple weeks.You can learn how to incorporate core Science/Tech/Engineeing/Arts/Math themes into a space context. See how coding or design thinking skills can very easily be applied to space exploration. Sessions often last 90 minutes where you learn a topic and participate in hands-on activities making it an immersive learning experience. Sessions are facilitated by space scientists and science communicators! Have other questions or can’t attend in person?
