CALLING IRISH KIDS!

We have an important question for the kids/students out there ages 3-12. If you could ask an astronaut onboard the International Space Station a question, what would it be?

Live from the International Space Station. What will happen?

  • Astronaut CHRIS CASSIDY will read a short kids book, Willow The Water Bear.
  • During the live broadcast, he will answer questions from kids in Ireland, USA and other countries worldwide. He will also describe some of the science onboard the International Space Station.
  • Mission Space will gather these together into a common theme. The common theme question will be answered with recognition given to the country behind the theme, in our case Ireland.

WHAT IS STORY TIME FROM SPACE?

SENDING BOOKS TO THE INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION

Now imagine Astronauts on the Space Station reading stories to and conducting science experiments for the children of Earth as the world rotates below.

Imagine no more…it’s Story Time from Space! While in space, astronauts are recording themselves reading these books to the children of Earth. These videos are being edited and placed on this Story Time From Space website andf Youtube channel. Astronauts on the ISS will also conduct and record educational demonstrations designed by Veteran Canadian Astronaut, Bjarni Tryggvason, to complement the science concepts found in the Story Time From Space books – look under the heading “Science Time Videos”. Story Time From Space was started by educator Patricia Tribe and astronaut Alvin Drew.
