Space for Life is launching an all-new podcast series for children ages 7 to 9 and offers many online spring break activities.
In fact, 4 podcast series will be launched over the next few months, one for each of the Space for Life museums. The first ASTRO-BIEN series, an intergalactic travel agency, associated with the Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium, was published this week, just in time for the spring break. It has 6 episodes of 10 to 12 minutes to listen to in succession or one at a time.
The other 3 youth podcast series will be broadcast successively during the year.
- Radio-Plantes, radio by and for plants ⎼ The Botanical Garden
- The literary meetings of animals ⎼ The Biodôme
- Insects in the shrink ⎼ The Insectarium
Produced in collaboration with La puce à l'oreille, the podcasts present concepts in a funny and humorous tone, in a playful way and a bit offbeat. Children will learn a lot about planets, plants, animals and insects there.
