It’s morning. You just sat down to enjoy a warm cup coffee. Or maybe it’s afternoon, and you are picking up the kids from school. Regardless of where you are, or what you are doing, it happens.
“What is the closest galaxy?”
“What would happen if a meteor hit Earth?” “How do I become an astronaut?”
Your kid starts to ask questions, and you don’t have the answers. Don’t panic — we’ve got you covered!
Let’s Talk Science is celebrating 25 years as a trusted partner in Canadian education with an out of this world experience! The celebration kicks off in September with the launch of our new Space website
; highlighting Canadian contributions to space and a full suite of space-related resources.
You can become a space expert — at least in the eyes of your kid.
Connect with your kids and work as a team doing one of our recommended hands-on activities to see what would happen if a meteor hit earth.
Sit down side-by-side and read articles to learn about planets and the closest galaxy to earth.
Watch one of our educator approved videos together on your computer or device to understand how a lunar eclipse works.
You can expand the exploration into the classroom by letting your kid’s teacher know about the Living Space action project — an opportunity for students to do citizen science, learn about coding, big data analysis and more! Participants also have the chance to win a live video chat with Canadian Astronaut, David Saint-Jacques — WHILE HE’S IN SPACE!
But that’s not all! Want your kids to try their hand at farming space seeds? Teachers and students can investigate the effects of outer space on seed germination with Tomatosphere. TM Ever wonder how neutron radiation affects people on Earth and on the International Space Station? They can find out by examining the neutron radiation levels in their classroom with RaDI-N2 & You.

The sky is never the limit.
