Get Involved: The Canadian Space Agency Needs You - Junior Astronauts

Wednesday, June 05, 2019 2:51 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)



The Canadian Space Agency (CSA) wants to work with science centres to improve its new Junior Astronauts initiative. If you are interested in reviewing some of our activities, testing them with your visitors (if possible) and providing feedback, let us know!

The activities to be tested are:

  • related to astronaut nutrition under the “Fitness and Nutrition” stream;

  • for youth in grades 6 to 9;

  • available in English only at the moment.

Please mention your interest to Miriam Micael no later than Friday, June 14. Volunteers will have until July 22, 2019, to test their activity and provide feedback. All details and a feedback form will be provided to volunteers.

Science centres that run an activity and provide feedback will be acknowledged as collaborators on the Junior Astronauts website. In addition, they will be eligible to enter into a draw for a chance to win a visit from a CSA astronaut or space expert to speak with their young audience in spring 2020!

Thank you for your help!



The CASC office is situated in Robinson Huron Treaty territory and the land on which we learn and live is the traditional territory of the Atikameksheng Anishnawbek. We strive for reconciliation through knowledge sharing and respectful relationships.
