Living Space and Beyond: Exploring Coding, Data Collection, and Space Exploration

Environmental and Outdoor EducationTechnology
Thursday Feb 14   09:00 AM to 11:45 AM (2 hours 45 minutes)

This workshop was created to introduce educators to our exciting new classroom Action Project - Living Space. This project will coincide with Canadian Astronaut David Saint-Jacques’ upcoming mission to the International Space Station (ISS) and is offered in partnership with the Canadian Space Agency, with funding support from the CanCode program.

During our workshop, participants will explore the online resources for the Living Space action project, code micro:bits with MakeCode (a JavaScript Blocks editor), incorporate custom sensors to record environmental data, create an interactive online model with Scratch and develop confidence incorporating computational thinking, as well as digital and coding skills into the classroom.

Open to all educators, but please note that the resources and materials are targeted towards Grade 6 and Grade 9 curriculum. NOTE: Please bring a laptop or computer with a USB port (i.e., chromebook, windows device, mac computer) and a power supply.
