With the help of Origin Room Break, Brain Power students managed to have a field trip without even leaving our headquarters!

We had a blast (literally!) at the Dunlap Observatory in Richmond Hill on May 14th! The Astronuts (yes, Astro-nuts!) Space Camp was phenomenal as many students received the incredible opportunity to talk to astronauts from the ISS and participate in many educational astronomy-related afternoon activities, including hanging out at the Brain Power booth – with awesome brain puzzles, games, and more.
