ACTIVITIES - STORY TIME FROM SPACE

“What you cannot imagine, you cannot do.”

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!  HERE IS LINK.

Story Time from Space is a project of the Global Space Education Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit eduation foundation.  They send children’s books to the International Space Station. While in space, astronauts are videotaping themselves reading these books to the children of Earth. These videos are being edited and placed on the Story Time From Space website- look under the heading ” Story Time Videos”.  Astronauts on the ISS will also conduct and videotape 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”.

To make Story Time From Space even more useful for educators, cross-content curriculum is being designed to support the Next Generation Science Standards and Common Core. All of these materials, along with the videos from orbit, will be posted on the Story Time from Space website, providing easy access for educators, families, libraries, science centers, scouts and others – look under the heading “Curriculum”.

Story Time From Space was started by educator Patricia Tribe and astronaut Alvin Drew, and also now includes veteran astronaut Bjarni Tryggvason who is designing the science demonstrations, Jack Moore who is designing the website & marketing,educator Debbie Brown-Biggs and author Jeffrey Bennett, who joined the team after his books were chosen and has granted permission for all his work to be used by Story Time From Space. CASIS (Center for the Advancement of Science in Space) have supported our research and supported them in the process of getting the educational payloads up to the ISS.
