We visit several farms (the Ottawa Experimental Farm, the Toronto Island Farm) and several community gardens. We are trying to see how the food is produced. And then to see how it could be produced in space (I.S.S. with the project Tomatosphere) or on Mars.
NASA and Space Apps Challenge at Toronto, the April 29th-30th! Save the date! It's a free event and a NASA incubator innovation program.
I will be at the event for run an activity, in English and French, about Space math for kids (9-13) and to present the project MX-Train like an astronaut.

Great activity today for the taste/food in Space and...math!
We used resources from MX-Train like an astronaut; book "Planting the seed for space exploration" from Canadian Space Agency and seeds from Tomatosphere/Let's talk about science.
Canadian teams we're waiting for your photos. Please share your experience :-)
We are trying to build a laser maze on a budget (and learning about laser in Space) + we are studying colors and light with a spectroscope.
Next time, we will observe wavelength and learn about nodes and antinodes.
