Chris Hadfield Virtual Classroom

Chris Hadfield Virtual Classroom

Get front-row seats to Chris Hadfield’s historic mission as the first Canadian Commander of the International Space Station (ISS) and his subsequent return to Earth! The National Film Board of Canada (NFB), the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) and the Canadian Museum of Nature (CMN) are offering students the chance to join Commander Hadfield in an exciting and illuminating live conversation this fall. Hadfield will blast into your classroom in real time to talk with your students about his journey to becoming an astronaut, his experiences aboard the ISS, and to answer any mind-boggling outer-space questions!
