Train Like an Astronaut and Ham Radio

Saturday, January 19, 2013
9:00 am - 4:30 pm
Yerkes Observatory
 

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to fly in space and train like an astronaut?  Join us for an active Stars at Yerkes session where we explore the challenges and benefits of human spaceflight in weightlessness.  This workshop is designed for all grade levels, and will examine life support systems, human physiology, and analogs your students can compare as they "train like an astronaut."  Information also will  be shared about how you and your students can connect with the International Space Station with Ham Radio with the ARISS program.



Cost for the workshop is $25.00 and registration is suggested.  Registration includes CPDUs and lunch.
