Bring space science into the classroom with two 3D educational resources

Educational Ressource: Planting the Seed for Space Exploration
Educational Ressource: [Re]action - Trajectories to Learning

Designed specifically for classrooms, the Canadian Space Agency's 3D education resources have been developed on an interactive platform that simulates the experience of flying on a Soyuz spacecraft and living and working on the International Space Station. Students will learn about science through the eyes of their virtual avatars, with the guidance of astronaut Chris Hadfield.
