Human Requirements for LifeFebruary 18
1:00pm – 3:00pm
Thin Red Line Aerospace

Aerospace engineer Maxim de Jong will get us thinking about our carbon footprint on Earth by looking at human requirements for life in space. Working on NASA projects involving space exploration gives him a unique viewpoint on how we have evolved to live on Earth and how very little we need to survive. Afterwards some indoor climbing wall fun, hot cocoa and snacks at Thin Red Line Aerospace. If you like to geek out on science, you can check out the projects he is working on.

Explorer Day Etiquette:

  • Be prepared to HAVE FUN!
  • Pre-registration with your Club Leader is required for most Explorer Days (Friends are welcome if space permits).
  • Please arrive 5-10 minutes before the scheduled start time to ensure enough time for passport stamping and organization. Starting times are firm, and Leaders cannot wait for late-comers!
  • Please stay with the Leader and let them know if you are leaving early.
  • Children must always be accompanied by an adult guardian, who is responsible for their behaviour. Children consistently disrupting the experience of others may be asked to leave.
  • Bring appropriate weather gear, sunscreen, snacks, water, and other useful tools like binoculars, sketch books, cameras, and magnifying glasses.
