Hullett Soars with Astronaut Chris Hadfield

Congratulations to Hullett Central Public School for soaring to new heights, one star at a time!
Grades 3, 4 and 5 students at Hullett Central Public School were able to soar into outer space recently by meeting with Canadian Astronaut Chris Hadfield in Russia. Now they were assisted by technology in having the rare opportunity to talk live with Mr. Hadfield via Adobe Connect along with an elementary school in Prince Edward Island. The Hullett students could step right up to the camera and speak with and ask questions of the famous Canadian Astronaut.
The seeds were planted for the Hullett Student opportunity to meet face to face with Hadfield six years ago, when they began to participate in the “Seeds in Space” program. One of 10,000 schools to take part, the Hullett students became part of a select few schools having the chance to ask questions directly to a Canadian Astronaut. iAM Education cameras were on the road again to the scene of the space adventure in Londesborough, in the class of Teacher Nancy Pickell as her students travelled to the stars.
