Space, a hostile environment. Isolated and confined, increased radiation levels and far from help. These are the conditions faced by our astronauts aboard the International Space Station and by those soon venturing into deep space. These challenges are also a part of daily life in Venetie, a remote village north of the Arctic Circle. With access only by bush plane, this once thriving village now has 53.2% living in poverty.Join Terri Mynatt and learn how to utilize the challenges of life in Venetie and other remote areas as a teaching tool for space science and STEM.
