Hey Kahoot!’ers! Notice anything different about our theme? Unearthly, even?
The K!rew have been having a blast sneaking Space music and illustrations into our learning platform, and we finally get to tell you why! We’ve had the pleasure of following along our friend and inspirational Kahoot!’er Steve Sherman’s series of Google Hangout interviews with space legends to celebrate the Human to Mars summit occurring on May 17-19 in Washington D.C. With a rockstar lineup of
this universe’s finest planetary minds, the event will explore what will be necessary in order to get an astronaut on Mars. Incredible, isn’t it?
From talks with NASA Administrator Charles Bolden to the Director for International Space Station Sam Scimemi and many more to come, Steve and his team at LivingMaths are producing a treasure trove of a series to be used in classrooms around the world. We were thrilled when we heard about Steve’s project to bring light to these heroic scientific voices, and immediately wanted to explore how we could bring these priceless learnings into immersive experiences for students. If only we had a global community of rockstar educators who’d appreciate something like that.. 😉
Before we’d even finished watching the first interview in his series, we were mining Kahoot! for our favorite space kahoots and Kahoot!’ers to bring together a resource to reinforce and introduce key STEM principles for learners of all ages (us included!).
Check out the interviews, then get into teams to play ‘out of this world’ Space kahoots handpicked by Steve’s team at LivingMaths:
