FREE Astronaut Webinars for Children in Lockdown

This Tuesday ISSET are kicking off ‘Space to Learn’ a LIVE online series delivered by NASA astronauts with a Q&A for young people. I thought this might be something you would be interested sharing with your network base.

‘Space to Learn’ is a LIVE interactive podcast with a different guest astronaut each week. Children and parents can tune in on YouTube and watch a 15 minutes presentation by a different guest astronaut each week followed by a 45 minutes LIVE Q&A.

With schools closing around the world and education moving into homes, we wanted to offer something inspirational with the goal to stay focused on studies, work hard and have fun.

We start with Space Shuttle astronaut and International Space Station Commander Steve Swanson showing how in the isolation of orbit, astronauts use imagination to have “Fun on the International Space Station”.

Steve says “Just like many people on Earth right now, astronauts live in self-isolation on the International Space Station. Tune in to learn how I made space fun and ask me your favourite space question.”

We are delighted that the podcasts will be hosted by Adam Gendle, TV Presenter and Ex professional snowboarder. Adam says “I’m super excited to hear more from the astronauts each week. Who knows, maybe it will be you telling us about your space adventures one day”

Steve and Adam will be at live on Tuesday 7th April at 2pm BST and again live at 7pm BST.
