The Cité de l'espace in schools!
The Cité de l’espace is breaking new ground with off-site educational offerings! In strict compliance with current health measures, the scientific mediators of the Cité de l’espace will, for the first time, visit schools to work with school children directly in their classrooms. With the Martian robot activity, the youngest pupils (1st, 2nd and 3rd graders) will explore the Red Planet and try their hands at coding and computer programming. 3rd, 4th and 5th graders will discover, with Class-tronaute, the daily life of astronauts at the International Space Station or ISS. These in-class special collaborative, hands-on events will be run by a scientific mediator from the Cité de l’espace.
