Kids across Canada will soon get a chance to work directly with astronauts, thanks to a new program called Living Space. It will see students do everything from monitoring air quality in their own classrooms to learning basic computer coding, all in an effort to solve real life problems.
Since when was being a student so cool?
Students will be paired with Canadian astronaut David Saint-Jacques on his mission aboard the International Space Station. During his mission, David will be experiencing first-hand the environmental conditions of the ISS and reporting them back to earth for participating classrooms to compare their results to. Students will explore how environmental conditions influence mental and physical health, and identify the best conditions for healthy and effective living.
