The Canadian Space Agency (CSA) is partnering with Let's Talk Science to bring David Saint-Jacques' mission into schools across Canada.
About the activity
Participating students will explore how environmental conditions influence mental and physical health, and identify the best conditions for healthy and effective living. This knowledge is important not only on Earth, but also on the International Space Station and someday maybe even on the Moon or Mars!
Students and educators across Canada will:
- Investigate environmental conditions, like temperature and air quality, in their classroom, and how these relate to health and well-being;
- Study some of the key environmental conditions that are carefully monitored and adjusted to keep astronauts physically and mentally healthy on the International Space Station;
- Collect data using programmed sensors and compare it with information from other participating classrooms as well as other locations – even the International Space Station during David Saint-Jacques' mission;
- Learn analytical thinking, as well as digital and coding skills!
