How do you wash your hands in space? How do you eat dessert or brush your teeth? When astronauts are away in space month after month, they need to be able to do all kinds of daily tasks while floating around in zero gravity gazing back at earth. Watch our favourite astronaut, Chris Hadfield, show you how things are done out in space. You will find his many videos in both French and English at the Canadian Space Agency’s website. There are lots of STEM activities and games for Junior Astronauts and Astronautes Juniors offered here, too.
For more space-themed activities, games and videos check out the NASA Kids Club (disponible en anglais seulement).
