Watch live today as astronauts perform a spacewalk LIVE outside the International Space Station!  One of the tasks is repairs to the Canadarm.   Something cool to have on in the background for sure. http://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/nasatv/index.html#education

If you want to join in the epic pi day math-geek fun tomorrow (actually Saturday) I've made a post with some weblinks, games, activities and a few other things to do with your class.  It is geared for Grades 6-9+ but I think the cartoons and main video would be a hit with the younger grades.  Happy Pi day!!

Do you want to bring everything from the stars to the depths of the ocean into your classroom?  Follow @csa_asc +Canadian Space Agency  and @Astro_Jeremy on Twitter, find NASA on UStream and dream big!   After a year of connecting via social media I was able to get a lab that my class designed done aboard Aquarius for the NEEMO mission.   See this blog post for more details.  Seriously amazing!  My next goal is the #ISS!
