Welcome to the ISS07 Project!
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for grades 3-12 teachers and students to collaborate with astronauts, scientists and engineers, and other classes from around the globe.
What have we been doing?
Since the project started in June 2007, participants have been very busy:
- Following the blog of NASA astronaut Clayton Anderson, during his 151 days onboard the International Space Station - June to October 2007.
- Web conferencing with Canadian Space Agency astronaut Dr. Steve MacLean, who completed a mission to the ISS in 2006.
- Blogging our questions and comments about living and working in orbit.
- Completing Science investigations from the Focus Areas and blogging about our results.
- Web conferencing about our investigations with astrophysicist Dr. Tom Stiff.
- Communicating with McMaster University students as they conducted seed irradiation experiments.
- Following continued construction of the ISS through Commander Peggy Whitson's blog.
There's a lot still to come over the next few months:
- Learn about Dextre - the Canadian robotic "hand" to be installed on the Station's Canadarm2.
- Conduct your own Science investigations and share your results in your blogs.
- Take part in web conference opportunities with our project experts.
- Get to know other students from around the world through their blogs.
- Have fun, while learning new things you're unlikely to find in your textbooks!
Registration is now closed. If you have any questions you may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
