JUNIOR ASTRONAUTS WANTED!
We're collaborating with the Canadian Space Agency to help recruit future astronauts!The Canadian Space Agency (CSA) recently launched the Junior Astronauts campaign for teachers, educators, youth group leaders and young Canadians in grades 6 to 9. Junior Astronauts is a campaign that allows young Canadians to test their skills and knowledge, to understand the role they can play in future Canadian missions to the Moon, and to get excited about science and space.
Here are ways for CASC members to get involved
1. SHARE the initiative with YOUR organization’s teacher network & show CASC's collective reach!
2. Deliver Junior Astronaut activities in YOUR science centre/science museum and win an astronaut visit!

Number of Activities
Help young Canadians win a trip to the CSA's Junior Astronauts Camp!
Young Canadians who complete at least one activity in each of the streams by March 29 2020 can apply to take part in the CSA’s Junior Astronauts recruitment. Selected youth from across Canada will have the opportunity to go to the Canadian Space Agency in Saint-Hubert, Quebec for a week of training by astronauts, scientists and engineers. Certificates for completing an activity are provided by the host organization (templates available on the Junior Astronaut website) and youth will need to submit a video that addresses the question "Why I should be chosen to be a CSA junior astronaut" (with guardian consent). Four (4) winners per province and territory (for a total of 52 prizes) will be chosen through random draws to attend the Junior Astronaut Camp.
