Wednesday, Sept. 23, the Grade 3 classes watched Alberta’s International Space Station event live on our smartboards. Dr. Robert Thirsk and the other astronauts aboard the space station answered questions asked by students from Vulcan, Alberta.
It was really interesting to listen to the answers given by the astronauts and cool to know that it was all happening as we watched.
