About the Event

In September 2009, students from the Palliser Regional Schools will have the opportunity to communicate in real time with astronauts aboard the International Space Station.  Canadian Space Agency astronaut Dr. Robert Thirsk will be the first Canadian to spend six months in space, and will speak to students in Vulcan from the International Space Station.

Palliser Regional Schools was selected based on the willingness and ability of the community to integrate technology, both in and outside the classroom, and for creating learning opportunities for students.  In the lead up to the event, the Canadian Space Agency will work with Palliser Regional Division teachers to provide the science and technology background needed to engage students in preparing for the event.
