CSA's Planting the Seed takes Gold!

The Canadian Space Agency and Project Whitecard Inc. have won a prestigious Gold Medal in the 2013 International Serious Play Awards competition!
Reaching approximately 1 million elementary students this year, “Planting the Seed” simulates the experience of working on the International Space Station with the guidance of a virtual astronaut, Chris Hadfield. Students learn about the role of plants in biological life support systems by creating a virtual living wall inside the ISS.
Project Whitecard Inc. worked alongside the CSA and Chris Hadfield to render authentic 3D environments as well as inspired learning programming and dialogue in both English and French, that will give lucky participants a real feeling of working and learning on the Space Station.
