Need some space? Join an expert from the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada on a virtual journey through the Milky Way galaxy! Students will explore the solar system and neighbouring galaxies, learn how to identify constellations and learn about the technology used to explore our skies.
Participants require a laptop or tablet to view the session, as well as access to Zoom (app or web version). A camera and microphone are optional.
Each session is 60 minutes long. While the format varies for each session, each one includes an opportunity for students to ask experts questions in real time.
Multiple classes, as well as online or at-home learners, can attend each session. At least two classes (or 30 participants) are needed to run each Direct From session, so they may be cancelled due to low registration.
Registration closes two days before each Direct From session.
Please contact [email protected] at least one week prior to the session to receive a refund. For cancellations within one week of the session, refunds are not guaranteed.
These are used for Spark internal purposes (e.g. training, evaluation) and to share with relevant external partners. Recordings cannot be shared with participants after the session.
Participants will be admitted to the call approximately five minutes before the session to ensure that their video and audio is working. All those joining the call earlier will be in the waiting room until the session starts.
Yes! Questions may be entered in the Zoom chat any time during the session. The host will try to get through as many as possible during the designated Q&A period. There may even be an opportunity to turn on microphones and ask questions directly!
Due to the nature of Direct From sessions, only the Spark host and external guest speakers will be allowed hosting and co-hosting privileges. Spark hosts cannot accommodate special teaching requests. For any specific support requests, start by emailing [email protected] with the details!
