Mission #11

April 17, 2011 - Robotics!

The terrific grade 8 “robotics” team of Ilir, Samantha and David visited the “astronuts” for mission #11 and provided an very interactive series of demonstrations and experiments on robotics.

They travelled from their school “Queensmount Senior Public school” in Kitchener to Space Ship Mercury Two. The trip, demonstrations and educational content were all created and organized by their Grade 8 math and science teacher, Philomena Bonis...

Philomena is an amazing space educator...she is very involved in space conferences as well as being integral in various school boards in developing and encouraging growth and participation in space education.

Philomena was also a finalist in the “Iron Science” competitions on Discovery Channel.
