This year, John Cronkite’s Grade 2/3 class at Voyageur Elementary have studied Space travel and interplanetary exploration.
Their focus was on possible techniques and structures humans might use to build space colonies in the future and how space suits protect humans from harmful radiation, differences in pressure and temperature.
Along with the many experiments they conducted, each student also made their own space suit and helped build a space base structure made from more than 100 Quesnel Cariboo Observer newspapers. The students of Cronkhite’s class would like to thank the Quesnel Observer for donating the newspapers, and Cariboo Pulp and Paper for its generous donation of 20 paper coveralls. Their generosity enhanced the learning experience of all the students in the class.
