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.

Subscribe to Space for Life audio wire in order to receive an alert when they are put online.

To discover during spring break
Espace pour la vie also offers activities for students on leave during school break.
