With a grand flourish to the end of school, two members of the CSS-Ottawa Chapter gave an exciting presentation to a Grade 5 class at the Ottawa Jewish Community School on June 16. Highlights included Dextre on the ISS, Scott Kelly's 2 year stay in space and some history on the Black Brant rocket. Most fun was the live physics lesson with students on rolling office chairs who 'gained momentum' by throwing a heavy object. Equally, a short range 'stomp' rocket got all the students tuned to the possibility of rocket flight. A great big thanks to Wolf and Gabriella.
Next week the CSS-Ottawa team is again at the Canadian Aviation and Space Museum for Canada Day. Look for us by the standing 'Space' display and drop by for a chat. We'd love to meet with you.
