Program Description & Details

Do your students have challenging questions about space science and astronomy? We might have the answers! Connect your students with our staff so we can share their passion and knowledge with them through a 45-minute video Skype session. Your virtual field trip will include a short demonstration related to one of the themes below and a Q & A session with our staff. 

A Day in a Dangerous Place Called Space

This video Skype presentation introduces students to the world of the International Space Station where astronauts live and work. We investigate the differences between living and working on Earth versus the microgravity environment of the ISS and highlight the challenges involved in exploring the extreme environment of space. Available Monday to Friday 8:30am - 10:00am (Pacific Standard Time).

Let's Talk about the Universe

For a more in-depth look at the science of astronomy, our curious staff are ready for your questions. From black holes to dark matter, to the origins of the Universe, we can customize a session based on your learning objectives and the topics that you're most interested in. Available anytime.
