  • Atoms, molecules...and odors/taste in Space :-)

    In good Montessorians we learned about atoms, mole and atomic/molar mass calculation and the notion of Big Bang (Montessori black ribbon and humility lesson very soon for visualizing time since Big-Bang and Earth’s birth).

    We also learn about molecules and combinaison of molecules on Earth and in Space...And we did a sensory activity to recognize the smells on Earth (soil), our moon (burnt smell), Mars (rotten egg), I.S.S. (sweating), Milky Way (raspberry and rum) etc. One combinaison of 50 molecules in Space made our galaxy smell raspberry and taste rum...(dont’ worry it was imitation rum extract for pastries and kids don’t taste this flavour ;-)
    We also made a memory game cards about molecules.

    See you soon. Please Canadian teams share your photos and activities :-)

  • Mathematics mission

    Astronauts need to be very good in many areas and especially in mathematics and logic.
    So my team works on Algebra ! The youngest, 10 years old, thinks that factoring and expanding equations is a game... All his results were good. Thanks NASA (and Fields Institute...) :-)
    We are trying also two free books of Canadian Space Agency: RoboMath and Robomatique3: Students can learn in a 3D Space Station environnement.

    Canadian Teams don’t forget to share your mission/photos on the blog :-)
    Wish you all the best,
