If you are a grade 6 or 9 science teacher you are lucky to be able to teach sky and space sciences, but what about the rest of us?   Come and discover how to bring the universe into your science classroom no matter what level you teach.  Learn how to utilize the educational supports that the Canadian Space Agency and NASA have to offer educators.  Explore how life aboard the International Space Station, a giant biosphere with hundreds of scientific experiments being run with every mission, can be applied to just about any lesson you teach.  There are so many resources including the Tomatosphere and potentially growing plants on Mars, to the physics of the launch, light and optics, environmental monitoring, robotics and so much more!  We can use technology like Ustream to watch spacewalks and launches live in our classrooms, Twitter to interact with fellow space-enthusiasts and celebrities like Chris Hadfield, Skype with active astronauts like our very own Jeremy Hansen or David Saint-Jacques, or even apply to have one of your own student's experiments done aboard the ISS!  We will also take time to collaborate with peer groups, develop mini-PLC’s and share ideas of how to become “all about that space” together!
