International Space University (ISU) Professor, Dr Chris Welch met the Grade 11 pupils of the English section of the International High-School of Pontonniers in Strasbourg (France).

The International High-School of Pontonniers, educates pupils from Grade 9 to post-secondary preparatory classes in economic and trade, welcomes foreign students and has international sections. The latter can take classes in many languages including English, German, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Chinese and Polish.

For two hours, Professor Welch presented the main reasons for the exploration and exploitation of space, demonstrated their everyday use and the numerous benefits generated by this type of research. After the lecture, an exchange started between the students and the teacher, all fascinated by the subject, enabling the young people to get detailed precise answers to some of their questions about the broad theme of space.

In addition, the professor brought along a unique object, made available by Heinlein Prize Trust, that captivated the audience - a Russian space suit that was worn by the US astronaut Peggy Whitson (now Head of the NASA astronaut office) when she was launched to the International Space Station on Soyuz TMA-11 in 2007 and returned in 2008.

Through projects implemented by the Pontonniers School, pupils participate to many intercultural and interdisciplinary projects. These three words - International, Intercultural and Interdisciplinary are also values shared by the International Space University.
